Watford West station in 1990
Watford West stood on the branch from Watford Junction to Croxley Green. It closed along with the rest of the line in 1996.
This video shows it one evening in 1990 when it was already semi-derelict. For some photographs of it in happier days see the pages for Watford West on Disused Stations.
The line through Watford West is due to reopen as part of the Croxley Rail Link. The station itself will not be revived, as one will be built nearby to serve the local hospital and Vicarage Road stadium.
In 2012 I visited Watford Metropolitan which will also close under these plans.
