The Heathrow Express train service, which meant electrification of the platform tracks at Paddington Station, will be operated by Great Western.  I'm not sure I understand how construction of the cross-London high-speed train route, which will go under the streets of London between Paddington and somewhere Doverside of the Thames, affects tenancy in the Old Oak Common coach yard, but there it is.  "The agreement means there is no need to build a new depot to replace the current facility at Old Oak Common which Heathrow Express must vacate by the end of 2019 as part of the High Speed 2 project."
