North Wembley station is a Network Rail station served by London Overground (Watford DC Line) and London Underground (Bakerloo line) services. It is between South Kenton to the north, and Wembley Central to the south. It is located on the south side of East Lane in North Wembley, part of the London Borough of Brent.

History[edit]

The station was first opened by the London and North Western Railway on 15 June 1912 as part of the "New Line" between Euston and Watford Junction; LER, Bakerloo line services began on 16 April 1917. Originally to be called East Lane, after the road passing over the railway at this location, it was named North Wembley from opening. It was built to the same general design as the other new stations on the same line and the layout at North Wembley station makes it almost identical to Kenton two stops to the north. Ticket gates and departure boards were recently installed at this station.
