Usual UK railway practice is to use 00:00 throughout in timetables,
including internal ones.

However, London Underground does print 24:00 on a ticket issued at
midnight, and in fact continues up to 27:30 (such tickets count as being
issued on the previous day for validity purposes, and this helps to
reinforce it).
