Former Hanwell Bus Garage (1)
Situated in The Broadway W7 3SS, this garage opened as a tram depot in July 1901, with tramcars running between Shepherd's Bush and Uxbridge. Trolleybuses then began working on route 607 between the two places in November 1936, and also worked on route 655 between Acton and Clapham Junction via Brentford and Hammersmith. The electric vehicles were replaced by Routemaster motorbuses in November 1960. The wording Hanwell Garage and CentreWest London Buses Ltd can be seen on the garage offices.
