comment Is it possible to buy the ticket on board in German train?
@O.R.Mapper Yes, I see, upon reading it once more the sentence does seem a bit odd.

@QuoraFeans Basically there are two models. (1) Conductors on each train, possibly checking between each station and selling tickets at the regular price or with a small extra charge. (2) No “conductor” but random checks with a fine or a steep extra charge to make fare dodging less attractive. Local DB trains and other train operators in Europe have moved to the second model, whereas the first one used to be more common.

Would you mind rewriting the first sentence to something like “It's generally possible but it depends on the specific train”? It would be more informative than “as always, it depends” (because it does not always depend, in some countries/train companies, it's not possible at all and Germany is notable in that it's possible in most cases) and would make the answer even better. +1 in any case.

@O.R.Mapper In many countries/networks, there must be a conductor on board. In Switzerland, you do see signs that indicate that there is no conductor selling tickets on a particular train (there can always be an unannounced check of course) so it make sense to explain that you can't rely on that in Germany.

I removed the reference to British embassies or consulates, I don't think they offer advice or respond to visa inquiry at all. You're supposed to determine yourself if you need a visa and lodge an official application. See e.g. gov.uk/government/world/organisations/… “Staff at our High Commission, Consulates and visa application centres cannot help with any visa enquiries.”

comment I am Non EU citizen working in Germany, can I travel to UK without visa?
@Tor-EinarJarnbjo “You might need a visa, depending on your nationality” means exactly the same thing than the second sentence of your answer (i.e. EU residents are not automatically freed from all visa requirements in other EU countries). It's far from pointless.

(+1) Having an EEA residence permit does free the holder from the DATV requirement so it would be more accurate to write that it does not free you from the requirement to have a visa to visit the UK.

@Karlson None of this matters in this case.
