    Whilst spawning on foot at Clapham Junction, I noticed the station feels quite 'unfinished' in a way.

    Here's some things I noticed:
    - No Passenger Information Screens beyond the overbridge. There's only one single PIS provided per platform in the game. In real life, there are several provided up and down the platform.
    - No platform 'step up'. If you want to cross platforms quickly, you basically can't. If you try to run on the tracks to cross, the game won't allow you to step up to the platforms.
    - Various missing fences for platform edges. There are various 'cliff hanging' platforms at Clapham Junction. There's no protective fencing to stop the player from falling on to the tracks.
    - Only the subway is accessible for crossing platforms. You cannot use the overbridge as this is blocked by an invisible wall.

    No doubt, there is definitely a lot of "snagging" work been missed on this route!

    Does any AI traffic run to Platforms 1-6?

    No.
    Platforms 1 and 2 are London Overground only.
    Platforms 3 to 6 are served by South West trains towards Reading and Windsor and Waterloo.

    Doesn’t the HST run through these platforms?

    I would've assumed it would have taken the reading to Waterloo line so going on the southwestern side but if it is not true I'm intrigued by the route they took

    They go via Basingstoke.

    Most videos show it taking the SWML side but I did see one showing a HST the Waterloo-Reading side. So I imagine it depends on the severity of the diversion?

    Hold it; I didn't think any HSTs were still in service around London? The ones GWR retained were cut down to four cars and are used in the West Country.

    You're right, I rarely see HSTs these days. Only really at STP now. That video was 2016, the timetable is set in 2018.

    Also a complete lack of stop car markers. No 4 8 or 12 car markers.
