Opening date[edit]

There is a photo in Dow, George (1965) Great Central, Vol III : Fay sets the pace, (London, Ian Allan, 422p) on page 108 which is labelled South Harrow Station, circa 1907. This appears to conflict with the information on this page. The photo shows a Great Central loco and suburban train at a station with four tracks, in a fairly flat rural setting.

Interesting - as this map (not to scale) also suggests this station, as 'South Harrow station' was open in 1914. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.152.146.55 (talk) 01:31, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
The name "South Harrow" has been borne by at least four different stations on two different lines. The station in the photo in Dow's book was opened by the Great Central Railway as South Harrow on 1 March 1906, and renamed Sudbury Hill Harrow on 19 July 1926; the RCH map mentioned in 86.152.146.55's post was prepared and published in 1914, and so naturally uses the name that the station had at that time. This article deals with a different station on the same line, opened by the London and North Eastern Railway as South Harrow and Roxeth on 19 July 1926, renamed Northolt Park for Northolt Village on 13 May 1929, again renamed Northolt Park on 13 June 1955; being opened in 1926, it's not shown on a 1914 map. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:30, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
