Bromley North Line

The Bromley North line is a short (less than 2 miles long) branch line in South East London that connects at Grove Park with the South Eastern Main Line operated by Southeastern. The line is known as Network Rail route S0 350.

History

The line was built by the South Eastern Railway to compete with the London, Chatham and Dover Railway who owned the other Bromley station, Bromley South

The line was electrified at 750V DC (third rail) with the other SECR urban routes from 1926 by Southern Railway.

Services

Currently only a shuttle service operates, known by the staff as "the popper".The typical off-peak service is two trains an hour in each direction.Previously though services had continued on to London Bridge, Cannon Street and Charing Cross.

Trains

Networkers (in the Metro layout) primarily operate on this route. Unlike all other Southeastern suburban services, they are worked with both a driver and a guard, instead of the usual driver only operationFact|date=March 2008.
