Broxbourne railway station, opened in 1840 [ [http://www.albury-field.demon.co.uk/bxind.htm#trans The Industrial History of Broxbourne ] ] , serves Broxbourne in Hertfordshire, England. It is on the West Anglia Main Line, and train services are provided by National Express East Anglia, who also manage the station.

History

Broxbourne Station was officially opened by the Northern and Eastern Railway on 15 September 1840. It was on their proposed line to Cambridge, but the next section of the line to Latton Mill (Harlow) was not opened until August 1841. Therefore for a short period of time Broxbourne served as the terminus for the line which ran up the Lea Valley from Stratford Junction where it joined the Eastern Counties Railway. The station was moved from its original site in Station Road to the present site in 1959.
