The Crossrail Tracks To The West Of Paddington Station

This map from carto metro, shows the track layout to the West of the Crossrail platforms at Paddington station.


  1. The Crossrail tunnels are shown in dotted purple at the Eastern end of the map.
  2. The tracks change from purple to black at the Royal Oak tunnel portal.
  3. Two tracks named CRL Eastbound and CRL Westbound appear to pass either side of two turnback sidings.
  4. These tracks change to purple in colour and can be followed to the Western end of the map.
  5. Tracks break off from this route to the North and serve the depot at Old Oak Common.

It appears to be a very clean and simple layout.

  2. a couple of questions… what is that line in the bottom west corner, closed no doubt… and second, where would any potential ‘North Kensington’ Crossrail station be located, between Ladbroke Grove and Portobello junctions?
