Staines: Windsor branch line railway
Staines: Windsor branch line railway
The railway was opened here, from Staines to Datchet, in 1848, finally reaching Windsor in 1849, after a little local, but well-heeled, opposition. Third rail electrification came in 1930. If currently planned proposals succeed this trackwork would also form part of the AirTrack railway linking Heathrow Terminal 5 with Staines and main line railway routes to the south-west. This is the view looking towards Datchet and Windsor, taken from the Church Lammas bridge which has always allowed commoners to access Staines Moor. The brick bridge carries the A30 Staines By-pass over the railway. For a view in the opposite direction towards Staines please see TQ0372 : Staines: Windsor branch line railway.
