The One Where I Go Somewhere New, aka this is a weird platform…

At the start of day yesterday, a signalling fault was reported between Waterloo and Clapham Junction, specifically W120. To fix the issue, Network Rail needed a line block on the Main Slow lines, both up and down. So all the trains usually using the slow lines… all were directed down (or up) the fast lines. Exciting!
For this reason, I have three platforms I would not usually dispatch from under my belt: Vauxhall P6 (horrible signal sighting and no OFF indicator, need to phone driver to confirm aspect), Clapham Junction P9 (usually reserved for long-distance services, for example Portsmouth), and Earlsfield P1 (usually used for not-stopping services).
