Tickets and labels

Despite a major change in the issuing system the current credit
card-shaped tickets have changed little since they were introduced
20-odd years ago. They brought in standardised issue and replaced a
number of styles of ticket, including this transitional style, issued at Queen Street for a journey to Balloch Central on 29 September 1984. This design was also credit card-sized but with square corners. Although issued partly electronically they still entailed the clerk fetching a ticket from a large rack of pre-printed destinations as their predecessors had done for 140 years.
