|Thomas Young||On foot, turn right outside Acton Town Station, then right again onto Bollo Lane. You will pass Smallbills (a commercial garage that often does minor SV work) and Bollo House. This is higher than road level but you may see something parked there. Frank Pick house is visible but no SVs, and the lorry yard is largely hidden behind trees. However, before the level crossings you come to the staff car park, which often contains a few car SVs. Double fence not good for photography though. If visiting during the week, Bollo Lane is usually fairly busy with SVs coming and going.||Mon 03/09/2007, 23:28|
|Thomas Young||Although much is hidden from view, there is lots to see at Acton. Taking the train from Chiswick Park to Acton Town, you will catch glimpses of parts of the works on the left. SVs will be visible but the only ones close enough to ID would be any on the stub road that rises to track level right at the south end of the complex. The right hand side is much better. After Bollo House and Frank Pick House (each with a handful of small vans and cars), you have the lorry yard, which usually has most of the larger vehicles in it. You may need to make a few passes (or take a camera with a fast burst mode) to ID all the vehicles! The staff car park is also visible but at a lower level.||Mon 03/09/2007, 23:25|
