Are there any decent Sunday freight spotting locations in London?

Hi all, I'm going to be in London on Sunday and if you can recommend anywhere that I might see a bit of freight, it would be mucho appreciated!

Cheers!

There's not that much freight on Sundays, although your best bet would probably be Willesden Junction.

There's a footbridge accessible from just outside the station, which spans the WCML. It has a good view of most of the trains.

Someone else might have some info on engineering trains, as there are probably some of those about on Sunday!

Sundays are not the best (or even close) day to spot freight. Anything that does run is usually ad-hoc/run as required. May see some engineering trains but these can run wildly out of path.

As for the best place, sorry I don't know.
