† special rules apply to trains arriving at Charing Cross, see below

Charing Cross

Because of the substandard width of platforms at the country end, the maximum number of vehicles that can be accommodated at each platform varies according to the type of stock in accordance with the following table:

Platform Gangway Classes 319/455/456 Classes 465/466
1 10(1) 12 12
2 10(1) 12 12
3 12 10 12(2)
4 12 10 12(2)
5 12 10 12(2)
6 12 10 12(2)

If two trains are to be accommodated at the same platform, the total number of vehicles must be determined by referring to the above table and using the number given for the second train arriving.

Notes:

1. Platforms 1 and 2 can accommodate 12 vehicles in emergency only.

2. If two trains are to be accommodated in platforms 3, 4, 5, or 6, and the second train arriving is formed of a Class 465 / 466 then the total number of vehicles must NOT exceed 10.
