South Harrow Station. 28th June 1903. Between Rayners Lane and Sudbury Hill on the Piccadilly Line. Built as part of the Metropolitan District Railway Electric service from Ealing. The Entrance was on the main road. The area is really called Roxteth but the railway thought ‘South Harrow’ sounded posher. The original station building was located south of the existing station and was accessed from South Hill Avenue. It was similar to the building at North Ealing and remains, adjacent to the eastbound platform, in the car park on the north side of the tracks. In 1935 a new station was opened accessed from Northolt Road. This was designed by Holden as a graduated structure stepping up on each side to the platforms of the high level tracks. The brick walls and bands of horizontal glazing are capped with a series of flat concrete slabs

Sidings for the gas company north of Northolt Road. Coal train daily for the gas works.

Harrow District Gas co. works north of the station.  Opened in 1855 and got their coal from the canal wharf at Greenford Green. After 1904 it came via the railway.
