View from canal towpath. The train is on the main line out of Paddington, the sidings lead to First Great Western depot and the area being developed for Crossrail. This area would be the proposed Old Oak Common station linking HS2, Crossrail and the Paddington main line.
Old Oak Common railway depots :: TQ2182
Old Oak Common has a large area of railway depots and sidings. The Great Western Railway developed the site from 1906. In 2011 one area is used as a Traction Maintenance Depot by First Great Western and Heathrow Express for rolling stock based in Paddington. Another area recently used by EWS (English Welsh & Scottish) formerly known as Coronation Sidings and The Factory is being developed as a depot for Crossrail. Eurostar trains were maintained here. High Speed Two (HS2) is planned to go through this area, with a major interchange station, and a base for tunnelling into central London.
