Slough To Windsor And Eton Central Station – 26th April 2018

I took these pictures as I travelled from Slough to Windsor and Eton Central station.

Note.

  1. Platform 1 at Slough has not been electrified, although the gantries are there.
  2. Some modern bridges probably stop full double-tracking of the route.
  3. There may be space for a passing loop on the line.
  4. The services is three trains per hour (tph) and the trip between the two stations takes just six minutes.

On balance if it were needed, I suspect that a track layout, signalling regime and operating method can be created that would allow a frequency of four tph.

A train would have fifteen minutes to do each round trip.

 

This would be tight, but I’m sure that there are operational methods, that could be used with a slightly faster Class 769 train to run the service.
