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 under British Rail. The station stands on Edinburgh Road (not Queens Road). There is step-free access from the street to both platforms.

The station is about 330 yards (300 m) from Walthamstow Central station and there is a direct footpath link between the two stations via a new exit onto Exeter Road. The footpath link, which opened in August 2014, is called Ray Dudley Way in commemoration of a local man who campaigned for the link for many years.[4]

The station is served by a train every 15 minutes in both directions throughout the day, though from June 2016 until February 2017 the service is suspended (with a rail-replacement bus in operation) whist the line undergoes major rebuilding work associated with forthcoming electrification.[5]
