    If its the same fare zone you may get away with it if you meet a decent revenue protection agent, if different zone then no chance. Either way you don't have a valid ticket for the station you are boarding at and you need a valid ticket to travel by train.

    You must have a valid ticket.

    Tickets can be purchased in advance at any staffed station, any booking made online can be collected at any station with a ticket machine

    If its one of the specials no need to get on early. If the regular service and you don't get any seat just claim a refund.
