On Sunday I took the 13.47 from Feltham to Waterloo, which was slightly delayed due to a trespass incident; we made up some time by Clapham Junction when we could proceed no further. The guard advised that this was due to a red signal caused by a freight train in the adjacent platform awaiting a relief crew.
The train in question was 484P from Dollands Moor to Scunthorpe, which was stopped in platform 5 but with its wagons trailing across the points blocking both up Windsor lines, and presumably also inward LO trains from the South London line. When I looked later on RTT it seems that it was there for about half an hour.
I appreciate, of course, that crew changes are necessary but could it not have been parked somewhere less inconvenient?

such as where? The crew need to be able to access it safely. That said clearly Clapham wasnt the best place to stop the train!

Point of order: it wasn't 484P - RTT jumbles up the headcodes, not that it really matters.

Point of order, Network Rail jumbles the headcodes, not RTT.
