Only Fools And Horses fan Steve Disbrowe — a ticket-seller for rail firm Silverlink Trains — syphoned more than £7,000 into his own accounts.
He set up a scam giving refunds for season tickets to non-existent customers, a court heard.
Disbrowe, 30, made £2,540 on one season ticket after giving a refund for “poor performance on the railway lines”.
But at Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court he admitted eight counts of false accounting.
Judge Simon Smith said: “The courts view people who steal from their employers very seriously. Prison is recommended.”
Disbrowe, of Hemel Hempstead, Herts, earns extra cash as a Del Boy lookalike with a yellow Robin Reliant — just like actor David Jason’s BBC character.
Disbrowe will be sentenced next month.
