"Frank R Lautenberg" Secaucus Junction Rail Station, New Jersey, #USA. Both Amtrak and NJ Transit trains stop here...
In one of the pics is an NJ Transit suburban train from which I alighted on my return trip from New Brunswick. Though I had a round trip ticket to New York, I alighted at Secaucus to save time by 1 hr. That put me into a little trouble.
Usually for passengers bound for New York (The last station for these trains), the ticket would be collected by the on board TTE and would

not be returned back unless requested. But I got down at an intermediate station Secaucus. On my way out of the station, I had to swipe my ticket. But my ticket was collected by TTE. I told this to the gate attendant, after she understood that my ticket was actually until NY, she explained that if your ticket was only until Secaucus, the TTE would have given it back to me.
If the same situation arises in future, she advised me to request the TTE to get the ticket back and swipe it here to check out of the station.

Unlike here, the process seems to b .... assuming the ticket was til only NY, but can't b accepted or so at Secaucus.
Well, its good that, nobody fined.

She asked me how much fare did I pay? When I replied $13, she understood that the ticket was till Penn Station. She asked me if my ticket was to NY. I said I bought a round trip for $26 that morning at Penn station. Then the attendant swiped her access card and let me out explaining the process to me.

I would keep a poker face. Seriously, some methods are weird but maybe for good reasons.
It doesn't happen here. Take an Express n get down at anywhere.
