Brockley railway station is on the main railway line between Template:LUL stations and Template:Stnlnk.

The station is operated by London Overground, with London Overground and Southern trains serving the station. First Capital Connect and some Southern services pass through the station. It is in Travelcard Zone 2.

History

The line was part of the London and Croydon Railway which opened in 1839. The station was opened on 6 March 1871, although today's buildings are of a modern design: the platforms are only located on the outer, Slow lines, since the station is only served by London Overground trains between Template:Stnlnk and Template:Stnlnk or Template:Stnlnk, local trains between London Bridge and Caterham and by the London Bridge to London Victoria loop line via Crystal Palace, plus some London Bridge to Guildford and Template:Stnlnk in peak times.

At the London end the line is crossed by the Template:Stnlnk to Lewisham line. At this location adjacent to Brockley station was sited Template:Stnlink station which closed in 1917 with the original London, Chatham and Dover Railway branch to Greenwich. The connection of that line to Lewisham is a later development. The possibility of opening platforms on this line with direct access to Victoria Station and the Bexleyheath Line to Dartford has often been suggested but is currently low on TfL's priorities.

Template:Stnlnk, on the Template:LUL stations to Sevenoaks line, and which also runs from Nunhead, is a mile to the south. Neither of these other lines has a physical connection with Brockley station. The next station to the north is Template:Stnlnk, and the next station to the south is Template:Stnlnk.

Brockley forms part of the new southbound extension of the East London Line that opened on 23 May 2010 and forms part of the London Overground network. Ticket barriers were installed at this time.
