The station today

All platforms at Queen's Park station are on the surface; the slow main line platforms do not have a regular daytime service, being reserved for use during engineering work or partial line closures. The Bakerloo line tunnel portals are about Template:Convert to the east of the station. Bakerloo line services starting or ending at Queen's Park normally do so in the two centre tracks of the 4-track carriage shed immediately to the west of the station. Unusually, Bakerloo line trains joining or leaving the Watford DC Line do so by passing through the carriage shed on one of the two outer roads. Around a third of Bakerloo line trains terminate at Queen's Park rather than continuing to Willesden Junction or Stonebridge Park or Harrow & Wealdstone stations. All platforms are accessed through ticket barriers.
