That must be a fairly recent development. I never seen that
and I visit Kings Cross every few weeks. Obviously this will be
helpful for passengers needing to decide from which station
the next train will depart.


Not just the next train, but the first to arrive at their destination.


Agreed.

For example, it shows that there's a train boarding on platform 10 for
Cambridge, but there's one 10 mins later from St Pancras that gets to
Cambridge eight minutes earlier.


Or the 19:39 to Kings Lynn eight minutes later than that from Kings
Cross, which gets to Cambridge another ten minutes sooner.

Back in the day, the train a Platform 10 would have been signed for
Foxton, to stop tourists mistakenly catching it if they wanted
Cambridge.

I wonder when that stopped?
