Seer Green and Jordans railway station is a railway station near the village of Seer Green in Buckinghamshire, England. It also serves the nearby village of Jordans. The station is on the Chiltern Main Line between Gerrards Cross and Beaconsfield. It is served by Chiltern Railways trains.

History[edit]

The station opened on New Year's Day 1915. It is on what was the Great Western and Great Central Joint Railway, which had been opened in 1906. The station was originally called Beaconsfield Golf Links due to its close proximity to that golf club, but has since been renamed.[when?]

The station was transferred from the Western Region of British Rail to the London Midland Region on 24 March 1974.[1]

Services[edit]

Most trains serving the station are those running between High Wycombe and London Marylebone, although other trains call at certain times, such as services for Birmingham Snow Hill, Bicester North, Banbury, or Aylesbury via Princes Risborough. For most of the day, during the week and on Saturdays, there are two trains per hour in each direction. In the past there have been non-stop London - Seer Green evening peak services, but none is timetabled currently. The Sunday service to Seer Green has now been restored to one train per hour in each direction between London Marylebone and Aylesbury via High Wycombe.

Most services from this station are operated by Class 165 trains, although some peak and late night/early morning services are operated by Class 168 trains.
