The bay platform for the LO GOBLIN service to Barking is on the left; however, as at the date of this photo, trains are only running on this service as far as South Tottenham, due to a freight derailment east thereof that damaged the track, which is likely to be out of action for several more weeks as Network Rail repair things.
