Service stop

To use the toilet at the German service stop, you have to purchase a coupon for €0.50 and slot the coupon into the turn-gate at the toilet entrance.  You can use this coupon as a €0.50 credit when you purchase items from the service stop after you have used their toilet.
Toilet coupon dispenser

Used the toilet coupons (1 for me, 1 for Alf) to "purchase" a bar of  €1 chocs
