    Afternoon all, NRE is reporting the the London Overground is suspended between Wembley Central and Willesden Junction because of a signalling problem at Harlesden.

    It also says on the disruption notice "Some London Midland services will also be calling additionally at Queens Park". Im assuming these would stop at the platforms on the WCML slow lines, but i thought these were blocked and werent able to be used, even then it didnt look in a good condition. Did any trains actually stop ?

    Also why were the slow line platforms there closed in the first place ?

    There are some booked stops at Queens Park on the slow lines; at least the first two trains into Euston in the morning and the last two out at night call there but don't appear in the public timetable.

    Im guessing thats supposed to be in case theres an emergency, drivers know where to slow, where to stop etc etc.

    Nope. It's mainly so TfL folk can get on and off.
