History

Brondesbury station opened on 2 January 1860 as Edgeware Road (Kilburn) Template:Sic station on the Hampstead Junction Railway.<ref name=Butt89>Template:Cite book</ref> It was renamed several times: Edgware Road on 1 November 1865,<ref name=Butt89 /> Edgware Road and Brondesbury on 1 January 1872,<ref name=Butt89 /> Brondesbury (Edgware Road) on 1 January 1873,<ref name=Butt89 /><ref name=Butt46>Template:Harvnb</ref> Brondesbury on 1 May 1883.<ref name=Butt46 /> A signal box was in use at the station until 5 February 1962.

A number of plans were put forward between 1890 and 1926 to build an underground railway along the Edgware Road, and would have seen the construction of a Tube station at Brondesbury. None of the schemes succeeded and no such line was ever built.<ref name="losttube">Template:Cite book</ref>
