The disused milk train platforms at West Ealing
The station was opened in 1871 as "Castle Hill and Ealing Dene" by the Great Western Railway, which had opened its broad gauge tracks between Paddington and Taplow on 4th June 1838. The last broad-gauge services were operated in 1892.

The station was located next to the London Co-operative Societies main creamery, and so was equipped with a dedicated milk train platform. The milk depot was closed long ago but the derelict platforms still remained in 2014. They are seen here from platform 4 which is the up stopping platform. The houses of Manor Road can be seen behind. However, as part of the Crossrail proposal, services from the Greenford Branch Line will terminate at West Ealing and this will be enabled by converting the former LCS milk train bay into an extra bay platform.
