Station History

London Overground Stonebridge Park Station was opened on 15th June 1912 by the London and North Western Railway, as part of their new line project from London Euston to Watford Junction.

The station closed on 9th January 1917 to allow works to be carried out in association with the extension of London Underground’s Bakerloo Line from Queens Park to Watford. The works were completed and the station reopened, with the first Bakerloo Line services calling here on 1st August 1917.

With the passing of the Railways Act 1921, the station and line were amalgamated with several others to form the London, Midland and Scottish Railway in 1923

During World War II, the station platforms were directly hit during a German air raid, destroying them and the buildings on them, with the main station building only receiving minor damage.

The end of hostilities in 1945 saw the London, Midland, and Scottish Railway rebuild both platforms and repair the station building. The station reopened just after the Nationalisation of the Railways saw the big four companies amalgamated, with the station and its line becoming part of British Railways Midland Region on 1st January 1948.

In the following years, the 1948 platform buildings suffered from two major fires resulting in the rebuilding of the up side structures, and the partial demolition of the down side building.

Due to falling patronage, London Underground withdrew the Bakerloo Line service between here and Watford Junction on 24th September 1982, although this decision was reversed and services resumed as far as Harrow and Wealdstone on 4th June 1984.

Management changes saw the station pass to the London & Southeastern business unit upon sectorisation in 1982, being relaunched as Network Southeast on 10 June 1986.

Privatisation of the railways saw the station and line become part of National Express under their Silverlink Trains subsidiary in 1993.

The final change of management for the line and its stations came in November 2007 when Transport for London undertook operation of the services under their London Overground brand, while station management was assumed by London Underground.
