There was a private station just to the west for Boreham House between 1843 and 1877.
An 1897 plan of the station shows two goods sidings on the up-side at the London end and a further siding at the country end also on the up-side. There was a refuge siding added at a later date on the down-side at the London end.
Goods traffic was ended on 27 June 1960.
