A (necessarily) terminating service from the south pulls into Waverley's Platform 5; like 6 only a few months old. A signal gantry was presumably thought necessary to avoid ambiguity with Platform 4 and 7's signals. I once read or heard that the steepest gradient between Kings Cross and Waverley is in the last few hundred yards. I like the sound of this so if it is not true I don't want to know.
