History[edit]

The Shepperton branch opened to passengers on 1 November 1864. The original scheme intended that it would extend to a terminus on the Middlesex bank of the River Thames just east of Chertsey Bridge, but this plan was abandoned in 1862.[3] The curve linking Fulwell and Teddington initially opened only to freight on 1 July 1894 and then carried passengers on 1 June 1901 as the replacement principal route, but selected for peak hours only by British Rail later. The line was electrified on 30 January 1916.
