The Northern City Line was opened in 1904 running from Moorgate to Finsbury Park. This was operated by tube trains (as a branch of the Northern Line) though the tunnels were built to mainline gauge which meant British Rail could take over the line in 1975 . One service that no longer stops at Moorgate is the London Thameslink, the Moorgate branch closing in 2009.
Unfortunately also in 1975 came the worst ever accident on the London Underground when a Northern City Line train crashed into the buffers killing 43 people .
Moorgate is a busy station served by 4 London Underground (3 of them sub-surface) lines and a National Rail line. Crossrail's Liverpool Street station will have an interchange with Moorgate. Over 35 million passengers pass through Moorgate every year.
