A lost line: Staines and West Drayton

Another video from the people at Londonist. This one finds some appealing fragments of the southern half of the line and that the northern half - from West Drayton to Colnbrook - is still open for freight traffic.

You can read more about this line on the Disused Stations page for Staines West.

A portion of this line was intended to form part of the (now mothballed) Airtrack project to provide direct rail links into Heathrow from the SWT lines

The northern section thats's still in use passes right through the middle of the M4/M25 interchange. Now used to carry aviation fuel for Heathrow.
