SU7073 : Reading West station

Reading West station
Reading West station
Looking north from the station footbridge. The train is a First Great Western operated class 165 unit on the half-hourly Basingstoke to Reading stopping service. It will take the right branch here, curving round onto the Great Western main line and Reading station. The left branch also joins the main line, and is used by freight trains from Southampton docks to the Midlands. Crossing movements in the Reading area cause capacity problems, so as part of the Reading station redevelopment during the next few years flyover and under crossings will be built in the area. It will also mean the relocation of Reading depot seen in the middle of the triangle.
