Homerton railway station
Homerton railway station is in the London Borough of Hackney in east London. It is on the North London Line, and the station and all trains serving it are operated by London Overground. It is in Travelcard Zone 2. The station is in Homerton, and close to Homerton University Hospital and Hackney Marshes.

The original station was opened on 1 October 1868 and services ceased on 15 May 1944 and a substitute bus service provided until official closure on 23 April 1945. 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 opened on 13 May 1985. .

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.

As part of the programme to introduce four-car trains on the London Overground network, the North London Line between Gospel Oak and Stratford closed in February 2010; reopening 1 June 2010. This is to enable the installation of a new signalling system and the extension of 30 platforms. Engineering work will continue until May 2011, during which reduced services will operate and Sunday services will be suspended. The typical service at the station is 4 trains per hour westbound to Richmond via Hackney, Highbury, Camden Road 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.
