The area shown was part of the North Pole Depot for Eurostar, and is now used for Hitachi Intercity Express. If HS2 and Old Oak City go ahead there will be residential and commercial buildings along the line of the sidings, south of the 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.
