I was at Clapham Junction thus lunch time and on platform 7 a train to Alton pulled in shortly after one to Exeter had left the vacinity of platform 8. It probably wasn't stopping. Then the Alton t win was held so another train could go through platform 8. It was obviously more delayed than the Alton train. That had been 2 minutes late leaving Woking and it was now 9 minutes late. It did get me thinking, if only more trains could do that at Clapham Junction, as in get overtaken, could more trains then stop there? The idea being as a train stops to let people on and off, ano her is able to overtake it. I seriously doubt it would ever be possible or they would have done it already but it's a nice pie in the sky dream. It is the first time I've witnessed an overtaking manoeuvre there though, so that was interesting.
