Hellooooo,

So basically I bought a train ticket from notts to london with the 16-25 discount that I can’t use anymore due to not being able to leave that day. My question is: is someone else with a 16-25 railcard able to use this ticket?

No because it has your details and a photo on it.

Unless you get a really stupid guard.

Everytime a guard asks me to show my ticket, with the 16-25 discount, they never ask to see my railcard or any proof.

Nooo my point is, the person who has bought the ticket has their own railcard so can they use the ticket they’ve bought off me if you get me?

Tickets have no names on them so yes anyone can use them so long as they have their own 16-25 railcard if the ticket says that's the type of discount used.

They do for me, when the tickets are checked.

But my ticket is checked less often than taking my whole journey (usually an hour to London) without having it checked. That includes several times when the guard checks tickets but casually walks by when I'm stood in the door section, for whatever reason.
