Its the luck of the draw I'm afraid , viewing from the Central line train just after departure from West ruislip station ie at the west end of the depot yard. Iv been past a dozen times this year and on 4 occasions 2 of the Kirov's were stabled in amongst the on track plant. On the other occasions only one of them was visible, but which one?

I hope this helps (or not!)

All best wishes

I think Ted is right but I've not been past in years. I guess at the weekend they might be out working too.

I am pretty sure the new tilting wagons are in sidings behind the usual plant sidings but these are at a lower level and therefore even more difficult to see!
