Platform Space At Milton Keynes Central

In Future Rail Developments At Milton Keynes, I said that there with all the new services, there would have to be some extra platform space.

So I went to Milton Keynes Central station and took these pictures.

At a quick look there does appear to be more space, than is normal in stations of this size. But then it was only built in 1982.

Platform 2A

The Platforms and Layout section of the Wikipedia entry for the station, says this about the length of Platform 2A.

Platform 2A is a five-car south-facing bay platform.

I would assume, that the car length is the standard British Rail length of twenty metres.

The pictures clearly show that the platform is electrified.
