Transport for London has been responsible for day-to-day management and operation of stations from Queen's Park to Harrow & Wealdstone since November 2007. London Underground (LU) manages all of these stations, except Willesden Junction which is managed by London Overground (through the train operator LOROL). LU has recently completed a programme of improvements to deliver better lighting, more CCTV coverage, new dot matrix indicator boards and customer Help Points. London Overground and Network Rail have also delivered significant improvements at Willesden Junction which include platform extensions, a new overbridge, improvements to lighting, CCTV and signage. Further enhancements will be completed by the end of the year. Network Rail still owns the station structures and infrastructure as well as the track and signalling north of Queen's Park.

There is regular liaison at a variety of levels between TfL and Network Rail, most regular of which is a monthly meeting to discuss operational issues. Specific project or issue-based liaison happens more regularly as necessary.
