Camberley railway station is in the town of Camberley in Surrey, England. It is on the Ascot to Guildford line. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by South West Trains. Opened in 1878 by the London and South Western Railway (when it was known as Camberley & York Town), the station gained a second platform fifteen years later when the line through here was doubled. The route was electrified (on the third rail system at 650 volts DC) by the Southern Railway on 1 January 1939.[1]

The station was completely rebuilt in 1975.

Services[edit]

Camberley is served by trains between Ascot and Guildford via Aldershot; these operate every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday, and every 60 minutes on Sundays. On Mondays to Fridays, there are three trains per day that continue beyond Ascot to London Waterloo in the morning peak period, and two from London in the evening. At other times, passengers are required to change at either Ascot or Ash Vale to reach London.

Services are run using a four carriage Class 450 or 458 and 2 cycles can be carried per train.
