[More information in July 2011 from email correspondence]
The area on the left includes Coronation Sidings.
"An employee who has worked at First Great Western (FGW) Old Oak Common (OOC) Depot for a long time stated that Coronation sidings ran along the area of the English Welsh and Scottish Railways (EWS) boundary fence that separated EWS from the FGW section of OOC.
He also stated that Old Oak Common sidings ran behind the whole of Old Oak
Common depot site. It ran along that section of line that ran near to the signal
box that you can see when you go over the bridge as you come up Old Oak
Common lane from Victoria Road."
[Information from the book Railway Track Diagrams, Great Western, by John Yonge]
The four lines of carriages nearest the photographer in the centre of the photo are Van Sidings 31 to 35 EWS. Further to their left beyond and beside a grassy patch are Coronation sidings, numbered 41 to 51 in the track diagram.

Some of the area is being changed for CrossRail.
