Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kilburn High Road railway station is a London Overground station situated near the south end of the Kilburn High Road, London NW6 in the London Borough of Camden. Kilburn High Road railway station opened in 1852 as Kilburn & Maida Vale station by the LNWR. At the beginning of the 20th century the station had platforms on all four lines out of Euston but with the construction of the Euston to Watford DC Line the local service took over the Slow Main Line platforms, the Slow Main Line services were diverted through what had been the Fast Main Line platforms and the Fast Main Lines were in turn moved south to their present position. The Slow Main Line platforms were almost entirely demolished during the electrification of the West Coast Main Line, with the last platform building disappearing in the 1980s when the LNWR platform canopies were removed. The current footbridge and street-level buildings are not so much the result of modernisation but of three or four major fires which have occurred here since the early 1970s.show more
