Yes, I think that's the main use now for the former depot.


When did become a former depot? Didn't realise it had closed.

I'd forgotten the exhibition centre had been knocked down. A disgraceful
act of social vandalism and one of the few things I agree with Sadiq Khan
about.

They're being converted into sidings to stable eight S7 trains, needed
because the number of such sidings was reduced when these trains
replaced
the shorter C stock. They won't be used as running lines.

Where have these eight trains been living for the last six years, then?

IIRC "in the wrong place" in the form of being parked in less
convenient places outwith traffic hours. Siding space has been lost at
Wembley Park because S stock is too long. That accounts for 4 or 5
trains and until recently there was at least one away at any one time
for mods.

I think some were also lost at Triangle sidings and Hammersmith.


I didn't realise trains were lost in the Triangle as well as ships and
planes.


They lost a Circle Line train for a week once.
They found it in Rickmansworth sidings.


Perhaps they should have been searching for all those ships and planes in
Rickmansworth.

Aren't you thinking of the Watford Triangle ?

If it is ships and planes then Ruislip Lido could be a candidate.

3 trains now - 1 District & 2 C&H. was 7 when I started there.

Yes, that definitely looks a bit less crowded now.

and Hammersmith.

Too long for the sheds until alterations made ?

Google turns up some reference to Lillie Bridge now being used for
stabling S stock.


Stabling for 12 trains after Engineers were evicted to West Ruislip.
