Apologies if this has been raised before but how and where do Thameslink trains that terminate at Kentish Town from the South reverse? I've looked at the carto metro map and can only see a siding at Cricklewood. Surely trains don't use this, if they do why don't they terminate here instead?
Thanks

Don’t they run northwards on the “up/down relief” into P3 and reverse back from the same platform? That’s what RTT suggests anyway. I checked the Rainham services this Sunday:

The two replies above are correct, they run into platform 3 and reverse. I've only occasionally seen them at platform 4 which is normally cordoned off and closed to passengers.
