New Cross station, in
New Cross, is a station for London Underground(though closed until 2010) and for mainline trains. The platforms are lettered A to D to differentiate them from those at New Cross Gatestation .
In the early Victorian railway boom two companies constructed lines through the area. The
London and Croydon Railway(L&CR) built a station on the New Cross Road close to Hatchamin 1839. In 1849 the South Eastern Railway (SER) put its station about 600 metres further east along the New Cross Road in the heart of New Cross. Both stations were named "New Cross", creating a confusion which lasted until the two companies were absorbed under the 1923 grouping into the Southern Railway and the name of the older station was changed to New Cross Gate; the ex-South Eastern station remained New Cross.
New Cross was intended to be taken over by the
Jubilee Line, then the Fleet Line, up to Stanmore, Wembley Park and Fenchurch Street but this never materialized.
7 August 1899a train hauled by "Terrier" No.59 "Cheam" collided with "Gladstone" No. 199 "Samuel Laing" after the driver overran signals approaching New Cross station. Fifteen people were injured.cite book | first = Tom| last = Middlemass| authorlink = | coauthors = | year =1995 | month = | title = Stroudley and his Terriers| chapter = | editor = | others = | edition = | pages = p79| publisher = Pendragon| location = York| id = ISBN 1 899816 00 3| url = ]
Spa Road Junction rail crashoccurred a short distance outside the station.
For London Underground it was formerly a southern terminus of the
East London Line, the next station being Surrey Quays.
The East London Line closed on 22 December 2007, and will not reopen until June 2010 when it will become part of the new
London Overgroundsystem. The service was also closed between 1995 and 1998 due to repair work on the East London Line's Thames Tunnel.
