Rail station in Watford.

Unusually for TfL-enabled services, Watford Junction Station is in a secret Travelcard zone all of its own. Internally to TfL, it's considered as being in zone W for the purposes of Oyster PAYG and Travelcards, but "zone W" is never used on anything customer-facing.

It's the terminus of the Euston-Watford Line on the London Overground network, and it's also served by non-local lines including the West Coast Main Line.

The Wikipedia entry on the Euston-Watford line notes that London Overground services from here are advertised as being for South Hampstead rather than Euston; if travelling to (or from) Euston, it's faster to use the London Midland services, on which Travelcards and Oyster PAYG are accepted.

PAYG acceptance tested by Kake, November 2008, at which point it cost £6 to get here from Zone 1.
