The Greenford Branch, built in 1903, is a two-and-three-quarter mile connecting line between the Great Western Paddington to Reading main line and the Paddington to Banbury via Princes Risborough line. Intermediate halts were added in 1906. A connection to a bay platform at the London Transport Circle Line station was added in 1948, which is where the line currently terminates. Trains currently run from Paddington to Greenford, but to relieve congestion on the main line they will terminate at West Ealing following the opening of Crossrail in 2017.
