Rea|ity ... until October 3rd 1940 the LNWR/LMS had run an electric passenger service from Willesden Junction to Earl's Court. Many railway companies had, at various times, operated services over the West London Iine some of which continued via Earl's Court.
The Mode|... assumes that the LMS and GWR had built their own joint station at Earl's Court. This enabled them to divert some of their commuter and local passenger trains away from Euston and Paddington. Services had continued into the early 1960's, when the model is set.
As well as local services and peak hour commuter trains there is a small parcels depot and a shunt road which leads into the nearby dairy.
