Railway Operations during the Olympics: Windsor and Eton Riverside
Windsor and Eton Riverside was South West Trains' gateway to Eton Dorney for the rowing, canoeing and kayak events.
|At stations en route (though not at Waterloo) trains were advertised as going to "Windsor E Drny", as shown at Clapham Junction on 11th August.|
|Rowing and Canoeing took place at Eton Dorney, which was served by a shuttle bus service from Windsor & Eton Riverside station and the familiar magenta Olympics signage points visitors in the right direction to the bus.|
|Passengers arriving at Windsor and Eton Riverside on 11th August, with no shortage of signage to guide them to the venue.|
|At busy times access to the station was via the side entrances to platform 2, with a barrier in place to separate those entering the station from those arriving on trains. The station toilets are small, so portable ones were provided on platform 2. So platform 2 was the relief arrangement in more than one sense!|
