Queen's Park station is a station served by London Underground and London Overground. 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.
London Midland previously made 3 operational calls daily, which were not found in public timetables. As of the December 2013 timetable these stops no longer exist, with no mainline services calling at the station.
All platforms at Queen's Park station are on the surface; the slow main line platforms (platforms 5 and 6) are 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. The two inner station tracks, platforms 3 (westbound) and 2 (eastbound), split into four tracks in a carriage shed to the west 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. Bakerloo line trains joining or leaving the Watford DC Line do so by passing through the carriage shed on one of the two outer tracks, which merge into the Watford DC Line, the latter of which becomes the station's outer tracks. 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.
Queen's Park was planned to become a step-free station and the project will be completed in 2019.
