Bromley North railway station is in the London Borough of Bromley in south-east London, in Travelcard Zone 4. The station and all trains serving it are operated by Southeastern. It is the terminus of the short Bromley North Branch Line from Grove Park.

The station was opened in 1878. It was extensively rebuilt by the Southern Railway in 1926.

As of December 2011 the typical Monday to Saturday off-peak service is three trains an hour to and from Grove Park for connections to London or other stations in South East London. This service was increased from two to three trains per hour in each direction in December 2011. There is no Sunday or bank holiday service.[4]

After opening the station had direct services to Holborn Viaduct, Victoria, London Bridge, London Cannon Street and London Charing Cross. From April 1976, this was cut back to a peak hour service and in the 1990s it was withdrawn.[citation needed] In order to get from Bromley North to Central London passengers have to change at Grove Park.

Future proposals[edit]

Proposals have been put forward by Transport for London[5] and the London Borough of Bromley[6] for the Bromley North Line to be extended and connected to either the Docklands Light Railway via a link south of Lewisham, to the Tramlink system from Beckenham Junction, or to an extension of the Bakerloo line from Elephant and Castle. These schemes have not been taken beyond the proposal stage and recommendations are expected to be published around 2017.

Additionally, it has been suggested that the Bromley North Line could be connected to London Overground via an extended service from New Cross, although the problems of line capacity make this seem an unlikely solution.[7]
