This West London gem was on the Heritage at Risk Register and was thankfully carefully restored as part of the Elizabeth Line preparations. Originally opened in December 1838 as part of the Great Western Railway, as a Grade II listed building, it hasn’t been modernised and given splashes of purple all over the place, but renovated to its classic appearance.

The station buildings have been repaired, re-painted and restored to the traditional Great Western Railway cream and golden brown colour scheme. Historic signs on the platforms have been carefully restored, and on the staircases, timber handrails and cast-iron balustrades have been given a new lease of life. 

A derelict building on platform 2 has been turned into a waiting room with period features, while the waiting room on platform 3 has also been refurbished to match.

On platform 3, the beautiful name board, bearing the pre-1974 name Hanwell and Elthorne, was also restored. Sadly this got blown down in a recent storm but new versions of the old Hanwell and Elthorne signs now sit proudly on both platforms.
