It's called a turnstile here. :D Not sure what it's called elsewhere and hence the reason for the symbol :?: :D

Thanks, Cas. I had forgotten that word - I called it a 'ticket machine thing' ;)

What do you call the machine you insert your ticket in to get to the platform?

I believe you call that machine the "Ticket Reader". The Ticket Reader may have a turnstile or a barrier. The barrier opens up when you slot in the ticket.
