Drayton Park Station
Drayton Park Station
One of London's least-known stations, Drayton Park opened on 14 February 1904 on the Great Northern & City Railway, which passed into operation by the Metropolitan Railway in 1912. The GN&C was operated electrically from the start, using a four-rail insulated DC supply system with positive rail outside the running rails on one side, and negative rail on the other. This unique system survived into London Transport control in 1933, and not until 1939 was it changed to the LT standard 4-rail system, using tube-sized rolling stock.
Drayton Park station in 2010 essentially retains the appearance it had when built, although the LT canopy added after 1933 rather spoils it.
