Its used in emergencies so if the juice fails the shoes can use the other one (I think)and not remain in the tunnel...

Personally I have no idea why it's there, but it wouldn't be for the reason you've suggested. Firstly the central rail isn't live, and secondly the 319s have no central shoegear and therefore can't draw current from a rail in that position.

Fourth rail at Farringdon is for current return, 4th rail and OHLE works better rather than 3rd rail, as 3rd rail current return is through the running rails, whereas on 4th rail the current returns to the running rails but transfers to the central rail

Interesting info, Thanks TC :)

and also thank you John Atkinson for posting the Southern 319 allocations on FCC in the Thameslink Yahoo Groups
