    I know there is a low key campaign to get this station back into use.

    I was wondering how many trains actually pass through this station? I rarely see a train going this way despite travelling from Brockley every morning and if I do it is usually a freight train.

    I know the Dartford to Victoria trains (which stop at Lewisham then Nunhead) pass through here, I think there's two an hour.

    Oh and presumably on the way back, so that's four an hour!

    It would be great to see it back in use but I wouldn't hold your breath... I think it's mostly freight trains that pass through at the moment

    High Level Link

    Background
    There has been considerable research into Brockley's High Level Link over the years. The station was originally known as Brockley Lane and closed in 1913. The platforms still remain today, as are the original steps leading up to them, only the wooden structures which were on the platforms have been completely removed.

    You can find out more about the history of the station from these websites:

    The Orient Express trains use that line too. That was quite a surprise when I saw one go over!
