A London Overground Class 378 Train In Platform 11 At Stratford Station

Trains on the North London Line to Stratford station normally terminate in Platform 1 or 2.

The train I got today terminated in Platform 11.

This platform is usually used for services up the Lea Valley.

  1. Could this be a sign that extension of Overground from Stratford to Meridian Water in place of local shuttle service Anglia provides could be coming?

    It could provide a replacement for deferred Crossrail 2 at far less cost !

  2. How comes that a London Overground Class 378 train from Richmond or Clapham Junction was using platform 11 at Stratford. Does that always happen or when platforms 1 and 2 are full and there’s no space left. Which means platform 11 is free in case there’s no train on platform 11 or could use platforms 10a or 12. As platform 10a isn’t always used except on occasions (for example a Greater Anglia train using platform 10a coming from Liverpool Street towards Southend Victoria or Braintree). And platform 12 is also not regularly used.

    • Perhaps it was just a dead train blocking Platform 1 or 2.

      But it could have been an experiment to something.

      Perhaps London Overground want to run a four tph service between Meridian Water and Clapham Junction stations.
