Feltham Depot for South West Trains

LOCATION: London Borough of Hounslow

Feltham Depot is a new railway depot on the Waterloo – Reading line in the London Borough of Hounslow, West London, between Feltham and Hounslow stations. The location of the new depot is on the site of the historic Feltham Marshalling Yard which was a large yard in operation between 1918 and 1969.

The depot is used to stable the new fleet of 10-car Class 701 trains, with a maximum capacity of 100 cars distributed as 10 lots of 10-car trains in 10 siding roads. The depot features AVIS, CET and carriage washing facilities.

Feltham Depot is connected from the mainline by a new “Up/Down Arrivals” through loop which shall be constructed off the Down Main, around the 14 ½ MP. The existing mainline interlocking, Feltham RRI, was altered and a new interlocking, Harlington Road RRI, controlled from Feltham ASC.
