Branch, Boat, Bus and Beer at Brentford (2)
That rather tired and univiting platform at Southall station used to be the home of trains to Brentford, and that is not the Brenford that used to be served by the London and South Western Railway from Waterloo. The Great Western Railway ran the branch, opened in 1860, mainly to serve Brentford Docks. (click on the map to enlarge it.)
Next on the map is Trumpers Lane Halt, sometime, in an early GWR tradition, spelled Halte.
It looks like very big business ...
Or was it?
