    Stevenage platform 5

    The service is already in place. The Watton terminators already have enough time to extend to Stevenage, terminate there and get back to Watton. There's no real alteration south of Watton (perhaps a minute here or there). There'll be 2tph 7 days per week.

    How was what supposed to take 5 years? The turnback project certainly wasn't.

    As far as I'm aware it was supposed to be finished in time for the May 2018 TT. Buses between Stevenage and Hertford were never the plan.

    May 2020 timetable changes

    They've also retimed two of the four Moorgate - Welwyn trains, off-peak. The xx20, xx50 are now xx17, xx47. It might not sound a lot, but it means the Welwyn trains are more evenly spaced. The last job of the off-peak is to move the other two Welwyn's two minutes later - xx02, xx32 instead of...

    Do you know how 18tph was achieved? As a layman looking at OpenTrainTimes, it seems there are 18 sections on the NCL. Are these the same sections that were in place when 18tph was active? Would it be possible to increase from the current maximum of 12tph without signalling changes - say 14tph?

    Could they be reloaded onto a waggon and taken by train towards Watton, across the points and back down to the worksite?

    Quite, but at some point they're going to have enough drivers.

    There's supposed to be 8tph (4 x WGC, 4 x HFN/SVG) on Saturdays, and 6tph (4 x WGC, 2 x SVG) on Sundays. That was 'implemented' in May last year. I think it ran okay first couple of weeks and then there were constant cancellations as drivers were moved to mainline services to try and even the...
