One of the guys over at TRENOlab noticed that what appear to be scheduled platforms are appearing in berths approaching Waterloo, in the adjacent berth to the relevant headcode (this is on OTT). Couldn't see any other mention of this and wondered whether anyone knows how this info is being derived and published?

The berths usually show the headcode that the arriving train next works often before the train even arrives , I assume a signaller puts this in, if automatically I couldn't tell you how this is derived

This is a special feature of the Wimbledon train describer and ARS system. There are two digit train describer berths installed in the panel giving the timetabled platform in the ARS system.
It's just about visible in the photos of panel 1 & 2 on https://photos.signalling.org/index?/category/1181-wimbledon

Regards,
Tom
