Why is there a door in the ceiling at the south end of platform 10 at
moorgate (behind that cage thing) ?

It sounds like the door that people who take the red pill drop
through.
I'll try to go and see it on Monday.

Was that originally a vent for diesel fumes?

I'm not sure of the reference to Bedford in the subject - are you definitely
on the deep level GN&C (nowadays FCC) platform?

I googled this, and I found you were trying to find out about the tunnels
around there before!

I see from that thread - 'Missing Moorgate, started 05 Aug 2008 - there
were steps and passageways at the south end of all four tunnels that
originally led to lifts etc.

Somewhere on line there is a 3D drawing of all the disused tunnels at
Moorgate, it is proving to be a bit elusive at the moment so I'll keep
looking. I guess you are already aware of the 'subbrit' pages on Moorgate
from the earlier thread...

I now find the said 3D drawing is on the Crossrail site, although it's URL
is stale, and it is shown in an earlier post of lonelytraveller's about
Moorgate and Liverpool St. So he'll probably find the answer if he googles
his own threads...

I thought that line was always electric?

Anyway, its a normal person-sized door, which is a bit of an odd shape
for fume extraction?

Yeah, that's the one. Sorry, I meant Hertford.

The picture faces north east, and has the ticket hall over most of it,
so it obscures everything in the platform 10 area. Unless you mean
some other 3D drawing?

It doesn't mention the door....

Not if you mean the Metropolitan Widened Lines.


No, I mean the ones that go to Finsbury Park. The one marked platform
10, in fact.
