Gordon Hill railway station is in Gordon Hill, in the London Borough of Enfield in north London, in Travelcard Zone 5. It was opened in April 1910. The station and the trains serving it are currently operated by Great Northern, on the Hertford Loop Line.

Three platforms are currently in use: Hertford-bound trains stop at platform 3 and London-bound trains stop at platform 2; platform 1 is a terminus platform used by certain trains to and from London, mainly during peak hours. A fourth platform face (opposite platform 3) is now disused - this was once used by North London Railway services to/from Broad Street.[2]

In autumn 2008, a new Shere FASTticket self-service ticket machine, accepting both cash and debit/credit cards was installed.

Services[edit]

The service runs to Moorgate via Highbury & Islington . The service uses class 313 EMUs, as these are the only units cleared to Moorgate.

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

At weekends, the service is a half-hourly service to Moorgate & Hertford North and an hourly service to Stevenage.

A number of trains to/from Moorgate start or terminate here on weekdays.[3]
