Old Goods Yard.
Old Goods Yard.
Taken in the Winter of 1961, this view of Brentford Goods yard was from a footbridge behind the factories of the Great West Road. The tracks on the right are the Southern Region electrified lines, whilst the remainder are tracks into the yard and beyond to Old Kew Junction and the goods line via Acton to eventually join the North London Line at Willesden. Brentford yards no longer exist but freight trains still use Old Kew Junction.
