Coborn Road railway station: a long abandoned East London station

Located on the main line out of London from Liverpool Street, Coborn Road station was opened by the Eastern Counties Railway in 1865.

The first station closed in 1919 with permanent closure following in 1946, with passengers now being served by the nearby Bow Road station on the District Line, Mile End on the District line and Central Line and the more recent Bow Church station on the DLR.

I spotted the station remains at the end of my Olympic stadium walk on Saturday, and grabbed a  All that remains of the station now is this entrance façade and the tracks above being around a long-gone platform.
