On 14 September 1960 freight was withdrawn from Enfield Town presumably a number of coal trains found their way to Enfield until the engine shed closed in November. The bulk of the station site has been redeveloped for housing but a small single-storey building survives at the entrance to the former goods yard.
Following the end of the war and the sole surviving Liverpool Street to Palace Gates to Palace Gates train was withdrawn in 1947 After the war passenger numbers on the remaining North Woolwich service declined rapidly and this was soon reduced to a peak-hour-only Monday - Friday service with a very limited weekend service of one morning and one afternoon train.

It does not store any personal data. It was located on the north - east side of The New Cross Gate is a railway station in New Cross, London, on the Brighton Main Line and the London Overground.

Wood Green 1894 Old Ordnance Survey Maps - The Godfrey Edition by David Mander 1994• The Great Eastern Railway obtained Parliamentary approval in 1866 for a branch line to run from its existing Enfield line at Seven Sisters to the new leisure complex at Alexandra Palace being constructed at the BRANCH LINES TO ENFIELD TOWN AND PALACE GATES.
The regular direct through trains to Liverpool Street had almost ceased by 1939 leaving the autocoach shuttle service link with Seven Sisters where fast City bound connections could be made but the North Woolwich service continued with 14 trains each way on weekdays in 1938 plus a generous hourly service late morning to early evening on Sundays. On 1 October 1909 services via the Southbury loop were withdrawn, but were reinstated for munitions workers between 1 March 1915 and 1 July 1919.
Connor, Jim 2004 Branch Lines to Enfield Town and Palace Gates BRANCH LINES TO ENFIELD TOWN AND PALACE GATES Press. Branch Lines to Enfield Town and Palace Gates These suburban byways evolved from rural lines and were subjected to periods of improvement and decline as traffic patterns altered. A siding runs into the to the south of the station. On privatisation in 1994 operation of the station was initially allocated to a business unit which succeeded the old British Railways structure before being taken over by WAGN in January 1997.
It is 15 miles 51 chains 25. On 1st January 1880 a new spur was opened allowing a new service to be established between Stratford and Palace Gates, this service later ran through to North Woolwich. The original route thence declined in importance from this date and was generally used as a diversionary route with a limited passenger service.

The name "Victoria Line" was chosen through a lack of any better ideas; attempts to repeat the accidental success of "Bakerloo" produced only the rather dubious "Walvic Line" and the better, though historically irrelevant, "Viking Line".

The line had terminated at the previous station, Noel Park and Wood Green, since opening on 1 January 1878. 2006 Notes: Silvertown Station opened in 1863; it had two staggered platforms. The Saturday and Sunday services are based around the weekday off peak pattern.
Finally, at Finsbury Park, there were two separate island platforms for the Piccadilly Line and the Northern Line; these were reconstructed as northbound and southbound platforms and the Northern Line was cut back to Drayton Park in consequence.
In an attempt to capitalise on the popularity of the Palace as a tourist attraction the Great Eastern resurrected their line from Seven Sisters but this time it was a more modest scheme, terminating at a station called Palace Gates adjacent to the GNR's Wood Green station and avoiding the steep climb up to the Palace.
Other facilities Little is known about the earliest engine shed on the line at Enfield Town which existed from 1849 to 1867 other than it could hold two locomotives.
