Train travellers at Northampton station are finding a new display just the ticket!
Elliott Badger who is a familiar face on the Castle station platforms, has collected more than 2,000 passenger train tickets to Northampton from all over Great Britain.
Now he's waiting for the missing 500-or-so to complete the full set from all 2,563 stations on the national rail network from Penzance in the south to Thurso in the far north of Scotland.

Elliott, 36, said: “What started off as an interest to see where passengers were travelling to and from, quickly turned into a hobby.
"Once I had a mini collection of train tickets on my hands, I made it a challenge to collect every station within the UK arriving at Northampton.
“Five years on — and with the All Aboard collection now on display for travellers to see — I’m making it my mission to fill in the missing gaps and complete the whole collection.”
Workmates from the barriers have helped Elliott pick up more than a million used tickets — going through around 1,000 per day to see where they started out.
