1930's Bollo Lane map showing Express site near South Acton Station. Doug Barrow commented in 2007"Regular coal and other freight trains passing through South Acton Station and using the Kew and Feltham route via Bollo Lane North Level Crossing. In those days there was an Express Dairy Depot, and a side entrance to Chiswick Bus Works, between the two level crossings; and there was a road access, to the Underground's Acton Works, on the south side of and adjacent to the west-side overbridge abutment where the South Acton Branch cossed Bollo Lane."
