    Any photos I find are solely for me to look at, not for the interest of anyone else or purpose of anything so don’t worry, thanks. I will take a look

    You don't say how far back you wish to go. Relatively recent photos, some back to the late 1950s or early 60s can be found at, for example, https://www.geograph.org.uk/browse.php?p=224290 - here's a sample (click on photo to go to the larger original):

    Also look out on that website for photos by Mr Ben Brooksbank. (Name corrected 12/10)

    Numerous photos also available via the National Railway Museum's website.

    You might also find the Middleton Press book "St Albans to Bedford" (2003, ISBN 1 904474 08X) of interest, as it includes old OS maps of each station as well.

    You will often find photos if you do a Google search. as, for example "rail photos (station name)". Not perfect, so a search for "Harlington" also shows lots of photos for Hayes & Harlington, and some random photos for other stations.
