Re: Platform details for train departures

I can't quite remember, but I think we do get platform information (at least for some stations and services, though not all). I think the logic for omitting it was partly to do with screen "real estate" but mainly becasue 'Smart Screens' are likely to be located some distance from the nearest station where future timings would be useful but details such a platform number (which can be, and probably have to be, checked on arrival at the station) won't. It's quite possible this view is wrong.
