Earlsfield railway station (Earlsfield) is in the London Borough of Wandsworth in south London. The station, which is in Travelcard Zone 3, is operated by South West Trains, as are all the trains serving it. The name 'Earlsfield' originates from the name of the large Victorian residence formerly on the present site of the station. When the site was sold by the Davis family to the railway company one of the conditions of sale was that the station would be called 'Earlsfield'.
Opened by the London and South Western Railway it became part of the Southern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed on to the Southern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
The typical off-peak service from the station is:
- 16 tph (trains per hour) to London Waterloo via Clapham Junction
- 4 tph to Guildford, 2 via Surbiton and Cobham and 2 via Epsom and Leatherhead
- 2 tph to Chessington South
- 2 tph to Dorking via Epsom
- 2 tph to Hampton Court
- 2 tph to Shepperton
- 2 tph to Woking
- 2 tph to Waterloo via Kingston and Richmond
Trains to Clapham Junction/Waterloo depart from platform 2; trains going away from London depart from platform 3. Platform 1 is adjacent to the fast, generally non-stopping, down line out of London, so is only used occasionally when the line served by platform 3 is unavailable.
