Old Oak Common - proposed site of HS2 station
Old Oak Common - proposed site of HS2 station
This view from a canal bridge includes the area of sidings which is proposed to become an interchange station between the proposed High Speed 2 railway, Crossrail, and the main line from Paddington to the West.
Old Oak Common railway depots
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.
