For some time after the Class 317'S were first introduced I'm pretty sure that Cricklewood was their main base and indeed I seem to remember that the depot was rebuilt to accomodate them. Any ideas why Cricklewood was closed and maintenance transfered to Hornsey, particulary as Carlton Rd Jct to Harringay is not electrified?
What's Cricklewood being extended for then?.Cricklewood closed when thameslink appeared.
The 319s were all selhurst allocated. The 317s went to Hornsey at the same time but were never in BRs time used on Bedford services again.
With the 319s and a cross London service Cricklewood was surplus to requirements.
