I would expect a train movement from Willesden Junction to the ECM
run via Gospel Oak, GOBLIN and the Harringay West Curve, but thi
shows there is another way.
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
of the Harringay curve is direct access to Ferme Park sidings.-
As part of GOBLIN electrification, the masts are in place on
the Harringay curve. From Gospel Oak, the route via Harringay
West is more direct.-
Little if any freight is electric-hauled anyway so directness is clearl
only one consideration as to whether a route is used. What's the rulin
gradient on the Harringay curve route?
I don't know the gradient specs. I have seen freight trains use
that chord so it is used at least sometimes. On the other hand, the
rails on the North London Incline are so clean and bright that it
is obviously used more than occasionally.
It's possible of course that both routes are used depending on
train paths and conflicting movements etc
