History

The railway line from Bury Street Junction, north of the current Edmonton Green station, to Cheshunt was opened by the Great Eastern Railway on October 1, 1891. It was known as the Churchbury Loop.

The district served by the line was still predominantly rural, and the coming of the tram to Waltham Cross in 1904 saw the railway unable to compete. Passenger services ceased on October 1, 1909, but were reinstated for the benefit of munitions workers between March 1, 1915 and July 1, 1919.

After that the line was only served by freight trains until the line was electrified as part of a wider scheme, and Southbury station reopened to passengers on November 21, 1960.White, H.P., A Regional History of the Railways of Great Britain Volume 3 Greater London, David & Charles, 1987 The line is now known as the Southbury Loop.
