The lines through Ponders End were electrified on 5 May 1969.[4] Prior to the completion of electrification in 1969, passenger services between Cheshunt and London Liverpool Street through Ponders End station were normally operated by Class 125 diesel multiple units (which had been purpose-built for the line in 1958).
