Inside the station are two other plaques which we've transcribed but they are too dull to warrant the full treatment:
Dull plaque 1: This plaque was unveiled by Tony McNulty, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Transport and MP for Harrow East on Friday 11th July 2003 to commemorate the refurbishment of Harrow & Wealstone station through an innovative partnership between Silverlink, Network Rail, The Railway Heritage Trust, English Heritage and The London Borough of Harrow.
Dull plaque 2: The London Underground Award presented to Railtrack Midlands for Harrow & Wealdstone Station by Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal. National Railway Heritage Awards.
