Dalston Kingsland railway station is a railway station on the North London Line in London, England. It is in the Dalston area of the London Borough of Hackney, on the western side of Kingsland High Street and opposite Ridley Road Market. The station and all trains serving it are operated by London Overground. It is in Travelcard Zone 2. Kingsland railway station was first opened on the site in 1850, but was replaced by Dalston Junction in 1865. The current station was opened in 1983.
A station was first opened on the site in 1850 by the North London Railway. It closed in 1865 when an extension was built to Broad Street in the City of London and a triangular junction was installed which joined the existing tracks to the east and west of the station. A new Dalston Junction station was opened at the southern tip of the junction and it replaced Kingsland station. The station was rebuilt and reopened on 16 May 1983 and it eventually replaced Dalston Junction when it closed, with the line to Broad Street in 1986.
Dalston Junction re-opened on 27 April 2010 on the London Overground East London Line extension, with interchange permitted between it and Dalston Kingsland. The western curve of the junction will be relaid for the East London Line going to Highbury & Islington station; the site of the eastern curve is covered by the car park of Kingsland shopping centre.
As part of the programme to introduce four-car trains on the London Overground network, the North London Line between Gospel Oak and Stratford closed in February 2010; reopening 1 June 2010. This was to enable the installation of a new signalling system and the extension of 30 platforms. Engineering work continued until May 2011, during which reduced services operated and Sunday services were suspended.
Typical off-peak frequency at the station is four trains per hour westbound to Richmond via Highbury & Islington, Camden Road and Willesden Junction, two trains per hour westbound to Clapham Junction and six trains per hour eastbound to Stratford but service intervals vary from about seven minutes during rush-hours to 30 minutes on Sundays.
At Dalston Kingsland station the NLL was powered by both 25kV overhead AC and 750V third-rail DC systems and was the change-over point between current collection by pantographs and by shoes for passenger trains which are dual-system Class 378 electric multiple units (EMUs). For reliability, time and part of the NLL upgrade, the Third rail has now been removed and Overhead cables power the North London Line between Stratford and Acton Central.
In August 2002 a potentially serious railway accident was avoided near Dalston Kingsland when a passenger train was inadvertently diverted on to the goods line during emergency signalling. When the passenger train was reversing to its correct path a following goods train almost ran into it..
