The West London line is a busy route linking various parts of the former Southern Region to the former Midland and Western Regions. It has had a lot of ups and downs over the years including the loss of the Intercity services thanks to the DfT in 2008, but currently supports five passenger trains an hour in each direction and a variety of freight services.
Here are a variety of photos both of the station ( for a modelling project ) and services over the route through the years.

Quite a lot of new images added mainly taken from Latchmere Jct, Kensington South Main or North Pole Jct signal boxes.
