The Bromley North line is a short (less than 2 miles long) branch line in South East London that connects at Grove Park with the main line from Charing Cross to Hastings (Hastings Line) via Tunbridge Wells operated by Southeastern.


The line was built by the South Eastern Railway to compete with the London, Chatham and Dover Railway who owned the other Bromley station, Bromley South

The line was electrified at 750v DC (third rail) with the other SECR urban routes from 1926 by Southern Railway.


Currently only a shuttle service operates. The typical off-peak service is two trains an hour in each direction. Previously though services had continued on to London Bridge, Cannon Street and Charing Cross.


Networkers (in the Metro layout) primarily operate on this route.
