Adjoining stations[edit]

Points to see to:
On the line to Chiswick & Hammersmith the next station was Rugby Road Halt.
Should Turnham Green be listed as next station? It was indeed the next station along the line (the chord was removed I think when London Transport stopped needing coal for its power station) but was there ever a passenger service from S Acton to T Green?--SilasW (talk) 15:24, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Apparently the Midland Railway ran a service from St Panacras to Earls Court on the Super Outer Circle route. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.140.29.141 (talk) 18:04, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Dreamed up map[edit]

What is the encyclopedic benefit of a what-might-have-been map? Given the date of closure there must be a real map of how it was with a way not to hit TfL copyright.--SilasW (talk) 12:26, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Pax #s as doubtful as ever[edit]

Pax #s are wildly divergent with no explanation making them so dubious as to be meaningless, even if they do come from the ORR (which proclaims that its figures are none too reliable!) However here the reference [1] given for the most recent year shown actually points to an older set of counts. Moreover the statistics are not given in chronological order. Pumping in these poor statistics, although some editors delight in it, seems not to benefit WP. And then, if humanity and WP survive, will station articles in 50 years show every year's number?--SilasW (talk) 12:41, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

History[edit]

History section is remarkably slender. Which co. built the sta.?--SilasW (talk) 16:03, 27 February 2010 (UTC) Someone might research the plan suggested in the 1970s to link Heathrow with North London by running Piccadilly trains via South Acton to the North London line. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leonard9ca (talkcontribs) 23:10, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
