While at Uxbridge, I got a glimpse of a Metropolitan line train that had “Farringdon” listed briefly as its destination, before getting changed to Aldgate and then finally to Baker Street, which I found unusual. While it was simply an error on the drivers part setting it as the destination, I’m still curious: can the Met actually use Farringdon as a terminus?
The train would have to tip out passengers/customers at Farringdon and run empty to reverse at Moorgate. This of course is unlikely unless there were issues which prevented Barbican and Moorgate from opening.
Is the (in platform) crossover still at Farringdon or has this been removed? It’s too short for S8 and probably S7s as well?
What is happening to the crossover at Liverpool Street, like Farringdon, which is also in the platform. I know it gets use when the Hammersmith and City Line is suspended between Liverpool Street and Barking. Do drivers have to put the train into the tunnel abit so the train can use the crossover?
