Oyster pay as you go zones

There are some places out of London you can use Oyster but many lines where Oyster is not valid beyond a certain station.  If you go too far you may get fined £20.00  Use this map to see where you can and cannot go.   It also shows the more expensive national rail lines and the cheaper tube routes.
