Default Willesden Junction To Finsbury Park

I have only two uses for You Tube and one of them is watching cab view videos of train journeys. I find these fascinating and a recent upload is especially interesting.

I would expect a train movement from Willesden Junction to the ECML to run via Gospel Oak, GOBLIN and the Harringay West Curve, but this video shows there is another way.

Agreed.

I generally find that much YouTube content is mainly just junk, though
there are some interesting things now and again.

I like cricket and there is a lot of very good old cricket footage.

Couldn't you say that about music, poetry, architecture, dancing,
literature... conversation, even.

Agreed. Especially those not-quite-so-funny TV series of the 1970s that may never be released to DVD, like John Inman in Odd Man Out, Mollie Sugden in Come Back Mrs Noah, Queenie's Castle, Not On Your Nellie, The Squirrels (1975-7) and many others.

Yes, indeed, via the Copenhagen Junction.

Do freight trains that need to traverse the NLL to reach the ECML from
UP WCML as a rule travel via the Harringay West Curve?

The North London incline is the preferred route, surely? The main advantage
of the Harringay curve is direct access to Ferme Park sidings.
