East Coast Main Line. First Capital Connectoperates suburban services along the Hertford Loop Line between London King's Cross or Moorgate, and Letchworth, Stevenage or Hertford North. Occasionally, National Express East Coasttrains operate non-stop along the route when diverted off the main section of the East Coast Main Line, due to engineering work. There is a siding to the north of Bowes Park which is occasionally used to turn around National Express East Coast trains heading for the Bounds Green Depot. There are also terminal platforms at Hertford North and Gordon Hill, the latter acting as a terminus during peak hours only.
The line is about 24 miles long, and was opened in three stages between 1871 and 1924. Grade-separated junctions connect each end of the northbound track with the main line. The route is electrified using the
25kV ACOHLE system.
