South Bromley railway station

South Bromley railway station was a former railway station in South Bromley, London, on the North London Railway between Bow and Poplar (East India Dock Road). It opened in 1884[1] but was closed in 1944 after bomb damage in the Blitz cut off the railway east of Dalston Junction.

The station never re-opened and was completely demolished when the line was redeveloped as the Docklands Light Railway in the 1980s. The station site lies slightly to the north of Langdon Park station which opened in 2007, between Devons Road and All Saints stations.
