It is 14 km (8¾ miles) north of Moorgate on the Hertford Loop Line. The station, and all trains serving it are operated by First Capital Connect. Originally, upon opening in 1871, the station building was almost identical to that at neighbouring Palmers Green. However, in 1965 the northbound side of the building was demolished due to subsidence.<ref name=Local>Template:Cite book</ref> In the 1970s the station boasted, on its southbound platform, a small newsagent and sweet shop, just beyond the base of the stairs down to the platform, but by 1980 this shop had been dismantled.
