Shepperton railway station is a passenger station serving the town of Shepperton in the Spelthorne district of Surrey, England. The station and all trains serving it are operated by South West Trains. The station is a terminus with one platform operational[n 1] and a large station/office building. Ian Allan Publishing has its offices at the west end of the station, and the company bought the Pullman car "Malaga" for hospitality purposes on static display near the terminus buffers.
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. The curve linking Fulwell and Teddington initially opened only to freight on 1 July 1894 and first carried passengers on 1 June 1901. The line was electrified on 30 January 1916. The original terminus included cattle sidings and a turntable (removed August 1942).
The typical weekday hourly service at the station is:
- 2 trains to London Waterloo via Kingston and Clapham Junction
- 2 trains from London Waterloo by that route.
The Saturday service is as on other weekdays without the extra services routed via Twickenham. On Sundays the service is hourly.
Its ticket office opens infrequently however a ticket machine is provided.
