1497 approaching platform 1 from the up siding

At 20 past 12, 1497 emerged from the up siding in preperation to take over duties from 1498.

Due to the unit not being able to directly cross over from the up siding to platform 4, 1497 went into platform 1, which normally only happens with the first working of the day.
