</table> West Ealing railway station was opened in 1871 as "Castle Hill and Ealing Dene" on the Great Western Railway, which was constructed from Paddington through Ealing to Bristol in 1836-8.[2]

From 1 March 1883, the station (then named Castle Hill (Ealing Dean)) was served by District Railway services running between Mansion House and Windsor. The service was discontinued as uneconomic after 30 September 1885.[3][4]

There are four lines (two for fast services out of Paddington), but only platforms 3 and 4 exist. There are also the remains of another platform next to platform 4 (the long-closed railway milk dock/distribution depot).

ServicesEdit

The station is served by local services operated by First Great Western from Paddington to Greenford and Heathrow Connect services from Paddington to Heathrow Airport. It is on the original line of the Great Western Railway. It is closed on Sundays. The restricted facilities are an intermittently open booking office and a ticket machine. The station is in Travelcard Zone 3. On weekdays and Saturdays West Ealing is served by eight trains an hour, four going to London Paddington and two going to Greenford and Heathrow Airport respectively.

As of October 2008, Oyster "pay as you go" can be used for journeys originating or ending at West Ealing.[5]

Transport linksEdit

London bus routes E7 and E11 pass the Station, and Uxbridge Road and Broadway and Bedford Road for London bus routes 83, 207, 427, 607, E3, E8, N11 and N207.

FutureEdit

Plans are in hand to provide Crossrail services at the station. As part of this proposal, services from Greenford will terminate at West Ealing. Capacity for this will be created by converting the former milk train bay into an extra bay platform.[6]
