A Platform Ticket is a type of rail ticket issued by Major Railway Station, permitting the bearer to access the platforms of a railway station, but not to board and use any train services. It allows people to walk with their friends and loved ones all the way to the passenger car at stations where the general public is not admitted to platforms. Railfans can also purchase platform tickets and enjoy their trainspotting hobbies.

The fare will be worked out on the basis of the last ticket checking station on the train's route.'
