The Anonymous Widower

Changing At West Ealing Station

This morning I changed at West Ealing station onto the Greenford Branch Line, after taking one of the new Class 387 trains from Paddington, which now run at a frequency of two trains per hour (tph).

It was not the best of experiences.

My train arrived and I assumed that they would be a few minutes to allow me to get across from Platform 3 to Platform 5.

But by the time I got there, the train had long since left, so I had a twenty-seven minute wait on a draughty and cold platform.

GWR could do one of three things.

  • Arrange the schedules, so that transferring passengers have time to catch the shuttle train.
  • Put up a temporary shelter, until the new station is built.
  • Run four tph on the Greenford Branch.

I wasn’t the only passenger, who was a bit fed up.
