comment Automated passport control in the EU
In my experience, you either get there and the SmartGate machines are all switched off, or it scans your passport + thinks for 20 seconds then gives an error and makes you queue up for a real person anyway...

Do you have a reference / source to cite showing that it is allowed, as opposed to having just been fine for you on two occasions?

comment What are UK “rail appointed travel agents”, and where can I find one who'll sell me a ticket?
You sure you guys couldnt sign up to be one in time? Only we could do a "friends and family of loco2" trip on the cheap to Scotland if you could manage to sell these... :)

The specific fare is fairly short lived, so wouldn't seem to make a good question. The general principal for the next time one of these comes up was what I wanted to know! I came across the offer via a business show, where they were quite clear it was trying to capture those who'd otherwise fly. Does anyone (eg atoc) publish as list of rail appointed agents?

The fare deal in question is the east coast try before you fly offer, which needs to be ticketed before the end of the 2nd of March. The T&Cs specifically say "Can be booked through rail appointed travel agents only"

comment Where exactly is the London Shoreditch National Express Coach Stop?
My hunch is that that bit of sea is at 0 latitude, 0 longitude, someone forgot to put in an entry, and the website isn't smart enough to spot that case and skip the map...

comment I'm travelling from Heathrow to Toledo in the USA with 2 connections, will I need to see to my luggage before I get to Toledo?
Depends entirely on how big the airport is, how big your plane is, and how many other planes arrived just before you... It's probably worth asking a new question on what it's like at Raleigh/Durham (there are a few other ones already for other airports)

For museum costs and transport, I'd suggest you read this question and this one which cover some of what you want to know!
