Precisely and also there has been big change to the timetables on the WCML so the new paths into Euston have been set.
I wonder if it is possible to use the 4th path to run a service up to Willesden Junction. At least this way it removes that 30 minute gap out of Euston and to allow a connection with the Bakerloo line so passengers can continue their journey for stations up to Harrow.
Or even a supplementary shuttle service between Harrow & Wealdstone and Watford Junction would be more useful.
To the south of the route, only South Hampstead would lose out, as Kilburn Park / High Road stations are close, and the Bakerloo Line can be used for connections to Euston Square at Baker Street, or to Swiss Cottage for South Hampstead. But this 30 minute gap will have a bigger impact at Watford High Street, Carpenders Park, Hatch End and Headstone Lane.
A more radical solution could even be to temporarily replace the Watford line with two short shuttle services, with only the Bakerloo running between Harrow & Wealdstone and Queen's Park - this could perhaps allow the GospelOak-Barking line to run a more frequent service where there is little alternative.
