Manor Park railway station is on the Great Eastern Main Line at Manor Park in the London Borough of Newham, east London. It is approximately 6 miles (9.7 km) down-line from London Liverpool Street and is situated between Forest Gate and Ilford. Its three-letter station code is MNP and it is in Travelcard Zone 3/4.

The station was opened in 1873 by the Great Eastern Railway. It is currently managed by Abellio Greater Anglia. Train services call at Manor Park as part of the Shenfield-Liverpool Street stopping "metro" service. From 2018, the station will be fully served by Crossrail, linking Manor Park to additional stations in central London as well as Reading and London Heathrow Airport.[3] The Crossrail service will initially replace the Shenfield-Liverpool Street "metro" from May 2015.

Manor Park is a short walk from Woodgrange Park on the Gospel Oak to Barking line, and an interchange is available one stop to the west, at Forest Gate, for Wanstead Park.[4]

The following services currently call at Manor Park:

Operator Route Material Typical frequency Notes

In normal operation all services use platforms 1 and 2. Platforms 3 and 4, on the through-lines, are generally only operational during engineering works that affect the other lines. An additional short, unnumbered, platform face is present to the south of platform 1 but is not in operation; the track behind it is used as a freight loop.[5]

Future development[edit]

Manor Park station will be served by Crossrail from 2018. The platforms will not be lengthened so selective door operation will be used instead. In addition to this, the freight loop at the station will be removed. Due to the narrow platforms, and the layout of the station, fitting lifts for disabled access would be difficult and expensive, requiring the walkways to be rebuilt and closing the station for several months. Like all the other Crossrail stations, this station will be made accessible.

Connections[edit]

London Buses routes 101; 104; 474; and W19 serve the station.
