There are several means of reversing at Northfields on the Picc:

Platform 2 (WB Fast) > EB Fast (Direct)
Platform 2 (WB Fast) > Reversing siding > Platform 3 (EB Fast)
Platforms 1/2 (WB Local/Fast) > Depot > Platform 3/4 (EB Fast/Local)

I believe there is also a reversing siding at KGX.

Reversal is possible at both S. Harrow and Barons Court.

I did use CULG, however the only info about reversal points is in the "Services" section, and that only lists ones in timetabled use.

Wood Green is a possible reversal point, but I'm sure I heard it's not used any more, even in disruption. - I believe Seth to be more reliable than the source of that...

Wood Green was tested for a possible Piccadilly Line limited service after July 7th.

Anyway... *looks in Quail*

There is a siding a Wood Green. It is used for trains that have problems or are running late.

Although rarely used, I am 100% sure as I have got on a train heading for Arnos and was told to get off at Wood Green due to problems with the trains radio.

However, for those I don't belive me, here is the proof - http://www.simonclarke.org/lul/maps/pic_strip.gif - This map gives a view of the number of lines, track (including sidings), platforms and tunnels.

:P :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Why not use that for the current service pattern, which has arisen through the recent unfortunate circumstances?

AFAIK Wood green could never be used for S to N reversing, but last time I used the Picc regularly about 1 in 4 trains reversed there N to S out of the peak. When did this stop?

Not sure when it stopped, certainly lots of off-peak Heathrows used to turn at Wood Green (WTT of 1979).

It isn't timetabled as being used these days... but is if things go up the wall.

Add KXSP for the Picc, Hounslow Central, Oakwood, Ruislip and Hatton Cross.

But have you seen the state of the rails of the crossover at Oakwood (or do you mean reversing via the depot?)

Reversing via the depot IIRC is what's usually done but don't quote me. Not been up that way for a while.

S to N can be used in emergencies.
Not for the last 23 years it couldn't, they're now doing mods to enable it in case Kings X is ever out of action again..

The most common method when I was at Earl's Court control room was to reverse off the EB platform.

Is there a daily rusty rails manoeuvre for this one now then? Last time I saw it tried (granted it was quite a few years ago) the train got halfway across and stuck solid!!!! so much that I went and caught a bus (unfortunately I had somewhere to go otherwise I would have loved to see how they got out of that one)
