Sydenham Railway Station (London)

Sydenham railway station serves the suburb of Sydenham in the London Borough of Lewisham. It is slightly to the north of Sydenham junction, which is a junction between the main line from London Bridge to Brighton and the line to Crystal Palace.

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 located in Travelcard Zone 3. The station is situated on Sydenham Road (A212)/Sydenham Station Approach. It has two platforms, each of which have shelters. Four tracks run through the station. The station layout is unusual in that the two platforms only partly face each other, and are partly staggered on either side of the footbridge.

Sydenham station has three entrances. The main entrance has a ticket office, ticket barriers, two ticket machines and two office windows, and is located on platform 2. The second entrance, also on platform 2, is only open when the ticket office is closed and the third entrance is on platform 1 and was upgraded from a 'back gate' to a shelter with an information screen, a ticket machine, two help points, and ticket barriers in late 2009, thus giving step free access to both platforms.

Famous quotes containing the words station and/or railway:

    Say first, of God above, or Man below,
    What can we reason, but from what we know?
    Of Man what see we, but his station here,
    From which to reason, or to which refer?
    Thro’ worlds unnumber’d tho’ the God be known,
    ‘Tis ours to trace him only in our own.

    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arm’s length.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
