Default Richmond or Stratford?

Right now I'm on an Overground train that says Stratford on the front
and Richmond on the side of the carriages. I boarded from platform 1
at Gospel Oak. This is exciting...

I assume it's going to Richmond if you boarded from platform 1.

I was recently on a Thameslink train to Blackfriars that announced at every
station that the next station was Petts Wood.

You might end up in Yorkshire or Warwickshire.

There are still Great Northern Class 365 units which even since the
refurbishment announce that they are the "WAGN service to" wherever.

Enunciated in full, iirc "West Anglia Great Northern".


Indeed.

I other news, 365's still operating north of Cambridge - I saw one at
Ely yesterday.

But was it going beyond Ely to King's Lynn?


No. Does that matter?


The position as I understood it was that 365s are no longer going to King's
Lynn. Since there are no


now?

hourly trains to Ely I am not surprised that they are going there.


Looking at the timetable it appears that the Ely starters at xx:58 don't
join at Cambridge (at xy:15), so no 365 units needing to stable there
for a while.

Whereas the Kings Lynn trains arrive Cambridge at xx:41 and spend six
minutes coupling to the spare half of the xx:30 arrival from Kings Cross
(before departing south at xx:47.

While there's a certain diagramming elegance to this, it means that Ely
passengers don't get 2tph "new trains" as promised.
