About Willesden Junction Station
Willesden Junction station is a Network Rail station in Harlesden, north-west London.
It is served by both London Overground and the Bakerloo line of the London Underground.
The West Coast Main Line station was opened by the London & North Western Railway on 1 September 1866 to replace the London and Birmingham Railway's Willesden station of 1841 which was 0.5 miles (0.80 km) to the northwest. Passenger services ended in 1962 when the platforms were removed during electrification of the WCML to allow the curvature of the tracks to be eased. Later the bridges for the North London Line (NLL) were rebuilt.
The High-Level station on the NLL was opened by the North London Railway in 1869 on a track crossing the WCML roughly at right angles.
The 'Willesden New Station' or Low-Level station on the Watford DC Line was opened in 1910 to the north of the main line with two outer through platforms and two inner bay platforms at the London end.
Platforms 1 and 3 are used by the Bakerloo line services, which began on 10 May 1915.
London Overground services are normally operated to Watford Junction, Euston, Richmond, Stratford and Clapham Junction.
