Old Oak Common shed London UK

A Bing bird's-eye view looking south of the former Great Western Railway shed, opened 1906, at Old Oak Common - best seen large.

 

There are at least 20 diesel locomotives on shed in this scene. Today of course there are none as the location is being prepared for excavation of the tunnels and trackbed of the CrossRail line. The turntable was formerly covered and was one of four in the complex. The building centre left is The Factory. The GWR West of England main line runs left to right off view to the top. The depot was owned by EWS by the time of this image.

 

The Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal just comes into the view bottom left.
