Cuffley railway station serves the village Cuffley in the Welwyn Hatfield district in Hertfordshire. It also serves other surrounding settlements, namely Goffs Oak, Northaw and the west of Cheshunt. The station opened in 1910 on the Hertford Loop Line between Enfield Chase and Hertford North as Cuffley and Goff's Oak, with the suffix being dropped some time later. The opening of the station allowed Cuffley to expand as an attractive commuter village with regular services to London King's Cross, and Broad Street (replaced by Northern City Line trains to Moorgate in 1976).

The station, and all trains serving it, is operated by First Capital Connect.

Train services[edit]

The service from the station runs to Moorgate on weekdays until about 9.30pm, and into London King's Cross after 9.30pm Mondays to Fridays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. Normally the service uses class 313 EMUs, as these are the only units cleared to Moorgate, although on weekends sometimes class 317 EMUs are used instead.

The typical off-peak service is 3 trains per hour to Moorgate, and 3 trains per hour to Hertford North, with one per hour extended to Letchworth Garden City via Stevenage.
