Seven Sisters Platform 4


#1

I went to Platform 4 but it said on the wall “Trains do not depart here!” plus the board says “Check Front of Train”.Why does this platform even exist??


#2

Is this the platform that is used to drop off passengers from trains that are going out of service at the Seven Sisters depot?

It probably has a Next Train indicator as a hangover from the days when trains routinely terminated at Seven Sisters before returning towards Brixton. Now, most trains go to Walthamstow unless they are going out of service.

I guess the indicator remains so that the platform could be used in emergency or engineering works.

I don’t believe it is a passenger platform as I was the only one on the platform .I might go to that Platform again.


#4

But I believe your right about the Seven Sister Depot - Northumberland Park.
It is a mile away from Seven Sister,I think you could be right but I don’t think passengers are dropped off there.

The platform you describe sounds very much like one I alighted from a few weeks ago. I remember seeing the “trains do not stop here” sign after the train departed. Clearly, that one did :slight_smile:

But I think you might have a long wait at the platform. Most trains go on to Walthamstow these days.

It turns out it wasn’t a passenger platform,considering why only TFL Staff were waiting.I believe it is a staff only to be honest
