This photo from Noel Road bridge looks down to show both ends of the tunnel. There is a freight line on the far left, then the diveunder, then freight lines crossing the diveunder tunnel to enter Acton Yard, then the two relief lines and two main lines into Paddington.
Acton Crossrail diveunder

A substantial number of freight trains, mainly with cement and aggregate, have to go from the London-bound goods lines into Acton Yard. This takes them across the line which will be used by eight crossrail trains per hour. To avoid disrupting Crossrail, its London-bound line is being put into a single-track tunnel under the freight lines. Westbound Crossrail will use one of the relief lines, eastbound will go through the diveunder.
