On leaving Witham on the Braintree branch, I noticed a bridge and then an 8 and 12 car stop sign. I checked Google Maps and we seemed to be on the other side of Witham.

Why are these stop signs so far from the station?

There is a 4 car board London side of the overbridge as well. They would allow a train to clear Witham platform 4 and stop just behind L818 signal to turn back towards the station.

Ah I see. Very clever folk here. I never even thought about a turnback use.
