(London Overground Watford DC Line &
London Underground Bakerloo Line)
The station was opened by the London North Western Railway in 1912 on it's line from London Euston to Watford Junction. The station was originally to have been called East Lane  (which is the road the station is on) though was opened as North Wembley. The platform shelters and footbridge down to the platforms were of the standard LNWR type used elsewhere on the line and remain in place. The line was already electrified when North Wembley was opened . Nowadays the line is part of London Overground.
The Bakerloo Line reached North Wembley in 1917 on it's way to Watford Junction. Services ran alongside the LNWR (later LMS and British Railways) DC trains until 1982 when the Bakerloo Line was cut back to Stonebridge Park. However Bakerloo Line trains were restored through North Wembley to Harrow & Wealdstone in 1984 .
In common with other joint stations on this line the difference in floor height between standard size London Overground trains and tube profile Bakerloo Line trains means the platform is higher than on a "pure" Underground station resulting in the need to step up out of or step down into a Bakerloo Line train.
