New Cross in East London serves trains out of London Cannon Street and London Bridge and is a terminus of the London Overground.

New Cross was opened by the South Eastern Railway in 1850 as New Cross & Naval School though this was changed to just New Cross in 1854. However the London & Croydon Railway had already built a station just 600m away called New Cross in 1839! It was not until both stations came under the Southern Railway umbrella in 1923 that the confusion was ended when the older station was renamed New Cross Gate.

New Cross was one of the terminuses of London Underground's East London Line (originally part of the Metropolitan Railway) until 2007 when the East London Line, for a long time the poor relation of the tube network, was finally closed and re-opened in 2010 as part of London Overground.

New Cross' platforms have letters and not numbers to reduce confusion between National Rail and Transport for London services.
