Addiscombe Line


Addiscombe Line

The Addiscombe Line was a railway service in south east London, United Kingdom operated by Network South East between Elmers End (London Borough of Bromley) and Addiscombe (London Borough of Croydon).

The line was built by the South Eastern Railway (SER) as part of its extensive competition with London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LBSCR). The line was electrified by Southern Railway in February 1926 with 660V DC third rail (subsequently 750V DC).

The line closed in 1997 for the new Tramlink which runs from Elmers End, Beckenham Junction or New Addington to Wimbledon
