    I would really value some advice on switching between national rail / oyster on a new commute.

    I’m travelling from Berkhamsted to Kenton daily and have bought a monthly ticket between these stations. Approx once a week I need to go from Berkhamsted to Euston. I thought the cheapest way would be to change to using oyster at Harrow and Wealdstone. However I’ve been presuming I need to get off my train to touch in with oyster before getting back on. As the oyster readers are some way away I invariably have to wait and get the train. When I tried this last week I had to wait 20min for the next train to Euston, it arrived around 8am and was so busy I couldn’t get on it so my whole journey took about 2h! Is there another way around this or way to use oyster without getting off my train?

    Thanks for any help
