Uxbridge (Vine Street) Branch Line
Uxbridge Vine Street station opened on 8 September 1856 as Uxbridge Station and was the earliest of three railway stations in Uxbridge, London, in the UK. It was the northern terminus of the Great Western Railway Uxbridge branch from the main line at West Drayton. South from Uxbridge town centre the line ran near Whitehall Road and Cleveland Road.
In 1863, a plan was approved to construct an extension of the Uxbridge Branch to create a link northwards to Watford Junction in Hertfordshire via Rickmansworth (Church Street), connecting it to the Watford and Rickmansworth Railway (W&RR). The scheme never went ahead as the GWR withdrew its funding.
The Uxbridge Branch continued to be operated under British Rail until 10 September 1962, when the service from West Drayton was withdrawn and Uxbridge Vine Street station was closed to passengers. Goods traffic ceased two years later and the only stretch of the line north of West Drayton to survive longer than this was that as far as Middlesex Oil Depot, some distance south of Cowley, which closed in 1979. Demolition of Uxbridge Vine Street station occurred in 1969. Hillingdon Road now covers its site.
