I went through Gordon Hill today. The layout is two island platforms, but currently only three tracks Down Hertford Loop, Up Hertford Loop and a bay platform on the east (up) side. From time to time I read of plans to restore one or both loops to enable inter city trains to over take the locals on days when the main line is closed for maintenance. It seems to me that the cheapest way to do this would be to route the up line via the current bay platform and make the current up platform a reversible loop usable by trains in either direction. Does anyone know if this is in any programme or is this one of those on the back burner because of finance issues at Network Rail?
