Milford railway station is a stop on the Portsmouth Direct Line, serving the village of Milford, Surrey in England.

Services[edit]

There is an hourly service to Haslemere southbound and London Waterloo northbound.

Although on the level, this station has been known to suffer from 'leaves on the line' resulting in poor traction for trains such as overshoots on stopping and difficulty moving off. There are points between the up and down lines but they do not appear to have been used recently.

Brief Encounter[edit]

The station has the same name as the fictional station in the film Brief Encounter (1945) starring Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson, although the scenes were filmed at Carnforth station in Lancashire.
