While the route via Primrose Hill is shut I'd say one of the stations between Gospel Oak and Kensal Rise as you should see the same trains you would see at Stratford as well as the GOBLIN line and diverted traffic.

However I don't know what the stations are actually like to be on re staff and vantage points etc etc.

Just a quick question; why is the freight line via Primrose Hill currently shut?

If it helps, all the places mentioned in this topic (except Hither Green!)
have up to date and accurate FMonline timetables, with all the non-runners
removed, so you can quickly see the number of trains likely to run and their
motive power on any given day. :)

I had a very enjoyable afternoon at Acton Main Line/Ealing Broadway on Monday, saw plenty of workings with a decent bit of variety.

Willesden the same evening was also very fruitful for everything going to/from Kenny Olyimpia and the WCML, particularly when viewed from the footbridge over the latter. I did therefore miss out on the workings via the Kensal Green chord, but they are few and far between in the grand scheme of things.
