Finchley Road And Frognal

Finchley Road & Frognal railway station lies on the London Overground network.

It was originally part of the Hampstead Junction Railway - built in 1860 to provide an alternative route from the conjested Primrose Hill route into Euston. This railway ran from Willesden Junction to Camden Road and involved the construction, starting just east of Finchley Road & Frognal station, of a tunnel to run underneath Hampstead's hill.

In turn the Hampstead Junction Railway became part of the North London Railway and, after nationalisation, the North London Line. It is now on the London Overground. The station is about five minutes' walk (400 metres) from Finchley Road tube station, and is marked as an official out-of-system interchange between the two.
