comment First steps for someone considering conversion
If you can find someone to trust, this is a good thing; I was more independent and slow to trust people. Also, not all rabbis are equipped (personally or knowledge-wise) to address conversion candidates; your mileage may vary.

@H'Gabriel a large enough library may have it, especially if they are either academic, or participate in a consortium. Bottom line, ask or check out the library's website.

If you can find a nearby library which subscribes, you can get the full service.

comment Train ticket not collected: destroy?
I have difficulty seeing the failure to collect as a "mistake," since it is known and accepted (at least pragmatically) that some passengers will not have their tickets collected, be it because they enter and leave the train before crew reach their section, short-staffedness, etc. As I put it earlier: are you buying the ticket per se, or the service with the ticket as voucher? It seems obvious to me that the latter is the case, but I don't have any other basis for it than my own rationale.

@avi I presumed there is a provider-agnostic answer, hence the omission. Besides, my question was meant to be theoretical
