The Anonymous Widower

The Hackney Campaign To Bring The North London Line Back From The Brink In The 80s

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the Hackney Gazette.

It is an interesting insight into life before the London Overground and how the section between Highbury & Islington and Stratford stations was created from a freight line, that hadn’t had passenger services for several decades.

It also talks about Broad Street station.

I used to use this station to travel from Ipswich to Metier’s offices at Stonebridge Park.

It was just a short walk from Liverpool Street station next door and then a train to Willesden along a very much forgotten North London Line, before taking the Bakerloo Line. It avoided the very crowded route via Baker Street station.
