Queen's Park station is a station served regularly by London Underground and London Overground. London Midland make 3 operational calls daily, not found in public timetables. It is in West Kilburn at the southern end of Salusbury Road, near the public park from which it takes its name. The station is in Travelcard Zone 2.
Services on the Bakerloo Line were extended from Kilburn Park to Queen's Park on 11 February 1915. On 10 May 1915 Bakerloo services began to operate north of Queen's Park as far as Willesden Junction over the recently built Watford DC Line tracks shared with the LNWR.
The station today
All platforms at Queen's Park station are on the surface; the slow main line platforms do not have a regular daytime service, being reserved for use during engineering work or partial line closures. The Bakerloo line tunnel portals are about 300 metres (980 ft) to the east of the station. Bakerloo line services starting or ending at Queen's Park normally do so in the two centre tracks of the 4-track carriage shed immediately to the west of the station. Unusually, Bakerloo line trains joining or leaving the Watford DC Line do so by passing through the carriage shed on one of the two outer roads. Around a third of Bakerloo line trains terminate at Queen's Park rather than continuing to Willesden Junction or Stonebridge Park or Harrow & Wealdstone stations. All platforms are accessed through ticket barriers.
London Buses routes 6 (24 hour service), 36 (24 hour service), 187 and 316 pass to the south of the station via one or more of Kilburn Lane, Carlton Vale and Shirland Road. Route 206 passes to the north of the station via Salusbury Road and Brondesbury Road. The triangular road junction south of the station is the "West Kilburn (The Falcon)" terminus for route 36. No buses actually pass the station entrance.
