Colindale (ZCD)

Colindale is a stop on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line between Hendon Central and Burnt Oak.

Type: Transport for London
(Northern Line)
Station code: ZCD
Opened: 1924
Platforms: 2
The station was opened in 1924 as part of the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway extension to Edgware. It had a surface building designed by Stanley Heaps in the classical style like other new stations of the period. The station was built with a single island platform with steps up to the surface.

Unfortunately the building was destroyed by a German bomb during the Blitz, thirteen people were killed in the station and on two trains which were in the station at the time.

A "temporary" wooden station building was set up though not replaced until 1962 by the current building. Colindale is close to RAF Museum London (see below).
