With the exception of a partial section of wall to the north of
the bridge over Barnabas Road, the original 1868 station has been
demolished. Although of reduced size, the original station building
would have been similar to buildings remaining at Hackney Central
and Camden Road. The present basic station was built in the 1980s
when passenger operation was restored to the North London Line.
Homerton is a station on the proposed Chelsea-Hackney line project (a proposed London
Underground line). It would be located between Hackney Central and Leytonstone. The platforms
will be underground under the existing London Overground track with
a connection to the London Overground platforms.
The typical service at the station is 4 trains per hour
westbound to Richmond via Hackney,
Highbury, Camden Town and Willesden, and 4 trains per hour
eastbound to Stratford. An additional shuttle
train running between Camden Road and Stratford
in the morning and evening peaks increases this number to 5-6
trains per hour in each direction.
