4. Correct- At South Tottenham there is OHLE to allow "one" trains to go between the Tottenham Hale and Seven Sisters branches, regulary used by the Stratford-Cheshunt trains.

7. Incorrect- This train used to terminate at Camden Road prior to the June timetable change, but obviously doesn't terminate here anymore!

0. Correct- Walthamstow Queens Road (when 150101 was hired by SL because of a shortage of thier own Sprinters)

3. Dalston Western Jn. SB

6. INCORRECT- Harringay Green Lanes is the station's present name, the name of this station has been changed FIVE times between opening and the station adopting its present name! I am looking for the second of these five names which the station recieved over its lifetime.

3. Correct- Dalston West signalbox does indeed control the signals at Caledonian Road & Barnsbury.
