Walthamstow Queen's Road railway station is a London Overground station between Blackhorse Road and Leyton Midland Road stations on the Gospel Oak to Barking Line in northeast London. It is in Zone 3. It opened as "Walthamstow" on 9 July 1894 and was renamed on 1 May 1968. The station stands on Edinburgh Road (not Queens Road). There is step-free access from the street to both platforms. The National Location Code (NLC) is 7407.[citation needed]

The station is about 300 metres from Walthamstow Central station. A new station exit on Exeter Road and footpath link to Walthamstow Central is currently under construction. The path, scheduled for opening in August 2013, is called Ray Dudley Way in commemoration of a local man who campaigned for the link for many years.[4] Until the link is opened, to interchange between these stations requires a 650m walk/cycle through local streets.

Since January 2011, the station is now served by a train every 15 minutes throughout the day in both directions.
