The Bakerloo Line began serving Harlesden in 1917 [1] after the building of a junction at Queen's Park, this was the first time tube trains and main line trains has shared the same tracks [2] though the difference in train heights and thus the problems with the different height of the platform and the tube train is a problem that persists to the present day.
