Waterloo Upgrade August 2017 – A First Trip Into Platform 1

I took these pictures as my train went from Clapham Junction into Platform 1 at Waterloo station.

It appears that if your train is going into Platforms 1  to 6, Platform 6 shows on the National Rail web site.

Then just outside the station, it appears that this changes to the actual pltform when it is allocated.

My train was actually held for a minute or two, whilst another train left the platform.

It all seems to happen very smoothly.

Despite the rain!

I certainly think that they’ll achieve their objective of running twenty-two trains per hour into platforms 1 to 6.

 

 

Note how in this display from about 16:00.

  1. There are still quite a few delayed and cancelled trains due to the overrunning engineering work.
  2. Platforms 1 to 4 and 6 have a departure.
  3. Platforms 20-24 don’t appear. in the display.

It appears that a lot of the objectives have been completed.
