Default West London Line - new station operating!

Some who will have read my previous posts on this subject will know
that I have expressed pessimism on a subject close to my heart - the
much-fabled proposed station at Imperial Wharf!

Well, allow me to take back everything that I said on the subject!
Unbeknown to me, the station has now opened and is in receipt of one
train per day!

According to the Southbound Silverlink platform timetable displayed at
West Brompton Station, the M-F 19.22 from Watford Junction stops at
Imperial Wharf at 20.22! This is the ONLY train that stops at this
station!

Marc.

Default Various WLL questions. Was West London Line - new station operating!

The italics in the timetable mean that the 19:22 is a connecting
service. The train is shown as leaving Willesden at 20:08 arriving at
Clapham Jcn at 20:28.


What's happened to this station; has it been dropped from the plans?

When is Shepherds Bush, or whatever it's going to be called, due to
open?

What about the H+C line station?

Does any trace remain of the Shepherds Bush station on the old Addison
Road - Hammersmith Grove Road - Richmond route?

When was the GWR Victoria - Uxbridge service withdrawn, and which
Uxbridge station did it serve?

Why did it take so long to get a proper passenger service restored on
the line after the war? There seemed to be plenty of demand forit when
it was done.

Some years ago a very short length of new platform edge slabs was laid
at Chelsea and Fulham station; does anybody know why this was done? I
can't see any reason why staff would need to alight from a train there.

On the East side of the line, just South od North Pole Junction, there
are two low metal (cast iron?) boxes, less than a metre high, which are
quite ornate. They look old, are they part of the original
electrification scheme?

It depends on what you count. The bridge parapet on the West side of
Shepherd's Bush Road is still there but I think the station site was
obliterated by garages years ago. It's reasonably clear in the aerial
photo on Windows Live Local (
http://local.live.com/).


Practically everything along this railway curve has been built over; the
only physical evidence of its existence now are the alignments of the
adjacent roads and the bridge humps in the roads crossing it (Shepherd's
Bush Road, Rockley Road and Richmond Way). The sort of buildings sitting
on the alignment also provide a clue, as they are large blocks
somewhat out of character with adjacent buildings.

Does anyone know when the station (and other associated infrastructure)
at Grove Road Station was demolished / removed? Is it my imagination,
or do I recall still seeing bits of this line (apart from he structure
that sits alongside the District Line, West of Hammersmith Station, of
course, which is still there) remaining into the early 1970s?

Marc.
