Changeover point at garage

D Dalston
Changeover points
Meal Reliefs at Aldgate but start and finish at garage running in service via Kingsland Road - Shoreditch - Liverpool Street and Middlesex Street.

Note:

A look at the farechart indicates garage journeys to Dalston went via Aldgate - Liverpool Street and Kingsland Road but the evening service seems to be withdrawn between Aldwych and Aldgate - but if farechart is correct garage journeys still went via Aldgate ratther than direct. Does anyone have an answer ?
