North Pole Depot, Old Oak Common sidings:
"View through boundary fence of Old Oak Common. If HS2 and Old Oak City go ahead, these sidings will be replaced by a strip of residential and commercial buildings. The Great Western Main Line is beyond the sidings. The buildings seen beyond are around North Acton tube station."

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 though this area, with a major interchange station, and a base for tunnelling into central London."
