Is there a way to see all trains booked through a specific platform?

Hi all, does anyone know a way of finding out all the services booked to call or pass a specific platform? So for example, all the services booked Platform 3 at New Street each day? I've tried OTT and RTT but can't see a way.
Thanks

Should be easy. The platform for every train is shown on RTT

note that some stations, especially those that are purely terminii, are notorious for changing platforms- Kings Cross is especially one. I'm guessing that complex through stations like New Street actually need most trains to stick to booked platforms to make the timetable work?

Indeed. A wrongly platformed train could cause hours of delays.

Yes it is, but you can't filter by platform.

I had seen something a few years ago I just can't remember which one/where it was
I haven't seen any filter option myself but it might mean going through the list and select those using a certain platform. Use a day in the future for booked platforms because platforms on the current day may have changed from the booked one.

Can't you just dump the data out to a spreadsheet and then do your own manipulation on it?
