History[edit]

A 1914 Railway Clearing House map of railways in the vicinity of Sudbury & Harrow Road

On 20 November 1905 the Great Central Railway opened a new route for freight trains between Neasden Junction and Northolt Junction. Passenger services from Marylebone began on 1 March 1906, when three new stations were opened: Wembley Hill, Sudbury & Harrow Road and South Harrow. On 2 April 1906 these services were extended to Northolt Junction.[3] The film 'Mosque in the Park' made for Thames Television and first shown 5 June 1973 (directed and narrated by acclaimed film Director Yavar Abbas), featured the daily routine of leading railwayman Mr. Siddiq who was originally from Delhi and who moved to London in 1960. The film shows him at work for British Rail at the Sudbury & Harrow Road railway station, a job that he did alone.[4]

Services[edit]

The station is served by a limited service of just 4 trains per day in each direction during the peak hours Monday-Friday only. In the morning peak there are 4 trains southbound to London Marylebone and in evening peak there are 3 trains northbound to West Ruislip and 1 to Gerrards Cross.[5]

There are no services on Saturdays or Sundays.
