There was a comment that these cards would work on any ticket barrier in the country,allowing unhindered access and exit.
I'm wondering if anyone has tried this? I've not had the opportunity to try it myself.
I'm referring to the new style card complete with photo that was sent out by RDG.

For anyone who doesn't know - the DAT card is a Duty Authority to Travel card, issued to operational TOC staff who require the use of other operators' services while on duty.

I have used mine at various stations on my routes, some of which aren't served by my TOC. It has never failed to work.

I had no idea about this, I'll certainly be giving it a try on Monday. As a freight driver I'm forever waiting to be let through the gates at various locations

Seems to work at all stations. I've only had it rejected by the barriers at one station but my other Smartcard may have interfered with it.
