Haggerston [1st]

Remaining side platform at the original North London Railway Haggerston station on the Broad Street branch of 1865, added to the line in 1867, closed after war damage in 1940 and seen here on 15th December 2014. The derelict island platform on the west side of the viaduct was still in situ for many years and I can remember speeding past it on the rattly old 501 slam door units as a boy in the 1960s and well into my youth too. The line and Broad Street station closed in 1986 but most of it was reopened in 2010 and linked by a new stretch of track at Shoreditch to the former LUL East London Line. A brand new station at Haggerston situated just to the north of the 1867 station was opened at the same time.
