A 1912 Railway Clearing House map of lines around Queenstown Road railway station (shown here as Queen's Road Battersea)

Queenstown Road is a railway station in South London, between Vauxhall and Clapham Junction. It is a short walk from Battersea Park station and Battersea Park. It has seven tracks running through it but only three platforms, two of which are in use, serving trains on the Waterloo to Richmond line and the Hounslow Loop.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 1 November 1877, by the London and South Western Railway, and was originally named Queen's Road (Battersea).[2] The entrance still bears the original name of the station, Queen's Road, not to be confused with Queens Road Peckham, Walthamstow Queen's Road or Queensway tube station, which was also originally called Queens Road. Queen's Road (Battersea) was renamed Queenstown Road (Battersea) on 12 May 1980.[2] Note that Queenstown Road station's modern entrance and platform signage lacks the "(Battersea)" suffix that is applied to it on timetables and some maps, i.e. Queenstown Road (Battersea). However, the latest "Oyster Rail Services" map produced by Transport for London shows the station as plain "Queenstown Road".[3] Moreover, on the map produced by the station managers, South West Trains, the station is also shown as "Queenstown Road".[4]

Services[edit]

Queenstown Road is located on the early stage of the South Western Main Line but with only 2 platforms in use. The off peak frequency is:
