Historyedit

The original 1837 Watford railway station The new railway line opened in 1837 approached Watford over the River Colne on a viaduct Thomas Roscoe, 1839

The first railway station to open in Watford was situated on the north side of St Albans Road, approximately 200 metres 220 yd further up the line from the present-day station This small, single-storey red-brick building was built 1836-7 when the first section of the London and Birmingham Railway L&BR was opened between London and Boxmoor The station provided first and second-class waiting rooms, a departure yard, a carriage shed and engine house The platforms were situated in a deep cutting which was accessed via a staircase4 In its 21 years of operation it also served as a station for royalty; in the short period when the Dowager Queen Adelaide was resident at Cassiobury House c1846-49, this station was remodelled to provide her with a royal waiting room, and it was also reportedly used by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on a trip to visit Sir Robert Peel in November 1843, when they travelled by road from Windsor Castle to take a train from Watford to Tamworth5 The old station closed when it was replaced by a new, larger station, which opened on 5 May 1858 The new Watford Junction station was located south of St Albans Road in order to accommodate the newly constructed branch line to St Albans The junction station was rebuilt in 1909, and was extensively redeveloped in the 1980s The Grade-II-listed Old Station House still stands at 147A St Albans Road, a rare surviving example of architecture from the beginning of the railway age, and today the building is occupied by a second-hand car dealership6

In 1862, the Watford and Rickmansworth Railway opened a route from Watford to Rickmansworth Church Street Now mostly closed, this route began by running south and west to a more central station on Watford's High Street, which remains in use

From 1846, the L&BR was absorbed into the London and North Western Railway LNWR and Watford Junction was now run by this large, ambitious company Seeking to compete with local buses and trams, the LNWR built an additional suburban line from Euston to Watford in the early years of the 20th century, now known as the Watford DC Line This veered away from the main line at Bushey to loop around Watford to pass through the High Street station A second suburban branch line was also built from High Street west towards Croxley Green to serve new housing developments in that area Both branches were later electrified as part of this improvement plan, on the same DC three-rail system The Rickmansworth branch was connected to the Main Line via two through platforms with a junction to the north; these platforms have since been partly built over and their remaining southern sections form part of the present DC lines terminus At one time tube-style trains were used on the branches to counter the low voltage caused by the lack of a sub-station near Rickmansworth

The Bakerloo line was extended to Watford Junction in 1917, giving a shared service north of Willesden Junction with the main line electric trains which served Euston and Broad Street stations However, since 19827 the line north of Harrow & Wealdstone has only been served by what is now the London Overground service from Euston station; this service uses these DC lines for its "all stations" local service

Oyster Card capability was extended to this station on 11 November 2007 on both the London Overground and Southern It was extended to London Midland services on 18 November 2007 However, the station is outside London fare zones 1–9 and special fares apply

With the electrification of the entire West London Line in the 1990s, it became practical to run services from Watford Junction to Clapham Junction, allowing passengers to cross London without changing trains Southern rail now operate an hourly service from Milton Keynes through Watford to East Croydon with connections to Brighton and Gatwick

Watford Locomotive Depot 27 January 1951

Motive power depotedit

The LNWR built a locomotive depot at the station in 1856, which was replaced by a larger building in 1872, and further enlarged in 1890 It was closed by British Railways in March 19658

Redevelopmentedit

In 1984 the Victorian station buildings were demolished and the station was rebuilt in a modern architectural style with a travel centre and a large office block above the station which is occupied by the lorry and bus manufacturing company Iveco Some 19th-century waiting rooms survived, but were finally demolished in 19879 To enlarge the car park and provide more space, the St Albans branch line was realigned northwards, with the original St Albans platforms becoming a single terminating bay now mostly used by Southern services

The station forecourt was extensively remodelled in 2013; the horseshoe-shaped taxi rank was moved to the side of the building, creating a larger pedestrian area in front of the station entrance, and the bus station enlarged Due to problems with the road layout, buses were unable to gain access to the bus station, and there were problems with access to the relocated car park London Midland are considering revising the design10

Further redevelopment of the station and its surroundings is planned for the next 10 years They may be delayed because the redevelopment of Watford Junction has been placed within the Pre-Qualification pool of proposed schemes by the Department for Transport

Accidents and incidentsedit

1954 accidentedit

1954 Watford Junction derailment

On 3 February 1954, an express passenger train became derailed in Watford Tunnel due to a broken rail The last three carriages became divided from the train as it entered the station One of them ended up on the platform A passing express passenger train grazed the wreckage but only received minor damage Fifteen people were injured11

Crossrailedit

Network Rail's July 2011 London & South East Route Utilisation Strategy RUS recommended diverting West Coast Main Line WCML services from stations between London and Milton Keynes Central away from Euston, to Crossrail via Old Oak Common, to free up capacity at Euston for High Speed 2 This would provide a direct service from the WCML to the Shenfield, Canary Wharf and Abbey Wood, release London Underground capacity at Euston, make better use of Crossrail's capacity west of Paddington, and improve access to Heathrow Airport from the north18 Under this scheme, all Crossrail trains would continue west of Paddington, instead of some of them terminating there They would serve Heathrow Airport 10 tph and stations to Maidenhead and Reading 6 tph19

In August 2014, a statement by the transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin indicated that the government was actively evaluating the extension of Crossrail as far as Tring, with potential Crossrail stops at Harrow & Wealdstone, Watford Junction, Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring The extension would relieve some pressure from London Underground and London Euston station while also increasing connectivity Conditions to the extension are that any extra services would not affect the planned service pattern for confirmed routes, as well as affordability2021

Platformsedit

Fast and slow lines at Watford Junction: a Virgin Trains Euston-Wolverhampton service & a London Midland stopping service The terminus of the Watford DC Line at Watford Junction

Platform Usage:

  • Platforms 1-4: Bay platforms for the three trains per hour London Overground Service Watford DC Line to London Euston calling at all stations

Future developmentsedit

Outline map of the changes to be brought about by the Croxley Rail Link

Watford Junction station area improvementsedit

There are plans to upgrade the station and its access points The scheme includes a new multi-storey car park and a new access road to the station, connecting the A412 to Colonial Way and thus to the A4008 M1 link road22

This scheme is currently in the Pre-Qualification pool, where to achieve funding a case for selection must be submitted and if successful the Watford Station redevelopments will be moved into the Development Pool where more than 24 transport projects will compete for about £600 million23

Croxley Rail Linkedit

Main article: Croxley Rail Link

The planned Croxley Rail Link, currently under construction, will divert the Metropolitan line's Watford branch via the disused Croxley Green branch to terminate at Watford Junction It is expected to open to passenger service in 201824

Proposed developmentsedit

Outline map of the possible future Crossrail extensions as recommended in the 2011 RUS25

West London Line improvementedit

The London and South East Route Utilisation Strategy document published by Network Rail in July 2011 makes several suggestions for improving services to and from Watford Junction, to link the West London Line more effectively with the WCML and to 'free up' platform space at London Euston with the anticipation of High Speed 226

Assuming the ongoing increase in demand on the orbital route between Watford Junction and the West London Line, a significant increase of peak capacity services is needed, as the current service forms the only link between the Watford Junction and Kensington Olympia corridors This proposal suggests increasing West London Line – Watford Junction/Milton Keynes Central peak service to three tph and increasing present off peak services from an hour to every 30 minutes as well as suggesting extending Southern trains from 4 car to 8 car to help ease overcrowding further26

Crossrailedit

The 2011 London & South East Rail Utilisation Strategy also made recommendations for the Crossrail lines now under construction in central London to be extended northwards into Hertfordshire via Watford Junction, with Tring and Milton Keynes identified as potential termini25 The report recommends the addition of a tunnel in the vicinity of a proposed station at Old Oak Common connecting the Crossrail route to the West Coast Main line The diversion of rail services through central London would enable a direct link from stations such as Watford Junction to West End stations such as Tottenham Court Road and would alleviate congestion at Euston station; Crossrail services currently planned to terminate at Paddington due to capacity constraints would also be able to continue further east, allowing for a more efficient use of the line This proposal has not been officially confirmed or funded, although an announcement made in August 2014 by the transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin indicated that the government was actively evaluating the possibility of extending Crossrail as far as Tring and Milton Keynes Central21

London Euston/Watford-Aylesbury servicesedit

The rail operator Chiltern Railways proposed in 2008 that a new east-west direct rail route from Watford Junction to Aylesbury could be operated via the new Croxley Rail Link and the northern section of the London to Aylesbury Line27 The proposal, or a connection from Aylesbury to London Euston, has been supported by the transport advocacy group Greengauge 2128 A 2006 report by Hertfordshire County Council mentioned the possibility of a link running as far as Amersham29

Abbey Line tramedit

On 30 October 2009 the then Secretary of State for Transport Lord Adonis announced a plan for Hertfordshire County Council to lease the Abbey Line from Network Rail and for the line to be operated using tram-train vehicles30 If the plan had proceeded, light rail services would have run from Watford Junction to St Albans Abbey from 2011 with possible extensions into St Albans city centre with on-street running, possibly as far as St Albans City railway station, and the possible re-instatement of the line to Hatfield31 The plans were formally dropped in 2013 32

Watford to St Albans Busway Abbey Buswayedit

A Draft Rail Strategy consultation published by Hertfordshire County Council in June 2015 again considered light rail proposals for the Abbey Line but also recommended that the railway track be removed and replaced with a guided busway3334
