Don't forget to say Cricklewood station as well - unfortunately no local newspaper - in Barnet, Brent or Camden - really covers Cricklwood properly.

Network rail documents say that Cricklewood Thameslink station will likely close, when and if "New Cricklewood" station opens further north. The reason is that the stations are too close together on this busy line.
