The Great Western Railway's Park Royal station (1903-1937). It was demolished very soon after closure. As is seen it was not the easiest station to access from the main road, the building being on what became Johnson Way. This was a full size station, as was North Acton.

The reason for the heavy concentration of industrialisation in this area goes back to WW1. The area once occupied by the failed Royal Agricultural Society show ground was commandeered by the government for war purposes. Part of the land (probably the area around the Horse Ring (later the Guinness Brewery) was given over to a Army Service Corps Remount Depot. This was a facility concerned with the gathering, husbandry, training and eventual distribution of the great numbers of horses still required oversees by the military at that time. The rest of the area was used to set up a vast munitions works. This would have been facilitated by the proximity to nearby rail and canal transportation links. Other munitions production sites were also set up nearby in North Acton. After the war, the former munitions works buildings were acquired and put to use by private industry.
