East acton tube station
The new line was built with connections to the West London Line near Shepherd's Bush, the former GWR main line to Birmingham at North Acton, and the main line to Bristol at Ealing Broadway. Since the CLR was exclusively a passenger service, two extra dedicated tracks for the GWR's freight trains were opened in 1938, but were closed in 1964. The trackbed of these rails is now overgrown, with vegetation visible immediately to the north of the station.
The station has recently been refurbished, with the staircases improved and the "East Acton" Underground roundels replaced with larger, newer versions.
London Buses route 7, 70, 72, 228, 272 and 283 serve the station.
