Also note all the TfL concession rules will also apply, so free travel for those with a 60+ London Oyster photocard, Freedom Pass or Veterans Oyster photocard, free for children under 11 etc

Such concessions don't apply beyond the 'Freedom Pass' mapped area.

For instance, someone with a 60+ Oyster would need to buy an extension ticket to travel through to Gatwick. Expect similar to Reading.

The trains to Gatwick though aren't run on the behalf of TfL.

There has been a statement by the Mayor of London that the concessions will be available on the Elizabeth Line in due course, and there was no qualification made on this being only part of it in this.

Currently they apply to Shenfield on TfL Rail, but not on other services.

Of course there is still time for fudge to be brought to the table.
