Rails Through Earls Court
Rails Through Earls Court
Looking southeast towards Earls Court Exhibition Centre from the A4 West Cromwell Road, with the original Earls Court 1 building on the left. A Southern service can be seen heading south along the West London Line towards Clapham Junction from where it will continue to its terminus at East Croydon.

The tracks to the right of centre, in a brick lined cutting, are the District Line route from Kensington Olympia. The junction connects them to the main east-west District Line route between Earls Court and West Kensington stations.

The building on the right of the photo is the permanent shed of London Underground's Lillie Bridge works. It was originally a train-shed for the Piccadilly Line.
