    Nah, it is a bay, but there is a loop line round the outside of it (electrfied to the end of the bay, pretty much (and pretty pointlessly!)

    Going on the same theme, I am going to say Oxted, as the bay platform can't cater for terminating trains - a shunt is required before a train starts there. The trains that do terminate there do so in a through platform.

    On a quick glance at start and end of today, I see there is one train that starts at CFD but I couldn't see any that terminate there. Have I missed one please?

    The 20.27 from Blackpool South terminates there every Sunday.

    To throw a spanner in the works, I notice you did not mention Harrogate, although someone else has.
    Harrogate has a terminationg platform, but it has not been in use for passengers for a long time and there is a physical fence preventing anyone to get on if one did. Even if it was open it is in the wrong direction for the terminating services to use.

    The same could be said for Kirkby Stephen who likewise have a fenced off terminating platform, and before anyone says it does not have a terminating service, it does in November/December when each year there is a scheduled Carlisle to Kirkby Stephen Thursday evening train.

    Wandsworth Road (10:20 from Kensington Olympia, A Parliamentary Train and the only train to terminate at WWR)

    About the above Service
    The 'permanent replacement bus' tactic was used from December 2008 between Ealing Broadway and Wandsworth Road when Cross Country Trains withdrew its services from Brighton to the North West, which was the only passenger service between Factory Junction, north of Wandsworth Road, and Latchmere Junction, on the West London Line. This service was later replaced by a single daily return train between Kensington Olympia and Wandsworth Road operated by Southern.

    AFAIK unless it has changed but only 1 passenger used this service.

    Saxmundham (until December) has been mentioned, there may be the odd short trip remain I suppose.

    Staying in Suffolk, I dont think we have mentioned Bury St Edmunds, which sees one train per day start and terminate there.


    Likewise, has anyone mentioned Ely?
    There are a few London/Cambridge services starting or terminating there.

    Not at the moment (while platform 1 still exists) but following the rebuild then yes this will apply

    Longbridge.

    Macclesfield - although there only appears to be one service a week that does this now.

    I don't think Goole has been mentioned?

    I don't think anything is planned to terminate at Poppleton. Its listed as a destination to prevent people boarding a York via Harrogate and spending much longer travelling than they intended by accident.

    Bristol actually has 3 dead end platforms.
    Platform 1 - usually used for Severn Beach services, but big enough to take a 220.
    Platform 2 - not used for passenger services at the moment, usually used for stabling.
    Platform 13 - formerly a through line but now a dead end used for Padds.
