Sunbury railway station is in the town of Sunbury-on-Thames, in the Spelthorne district of Surrey, England. The station and all trains serving it are operated by South West Trains.

Its ticket office on the London-bound platform is staffed only in peak hours however beside it is a ticket vending machine. A car park is adjacent to the London-bound platform with limited free parking by the Shepperton-bound platform.

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.[1] 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. The line was electrified on 30 January 1916.

Services[edit]

The typical weekday hourly service at the station is:

Monday to Friday, four additional early morning rush-hour trains to Waterloo are routed via Twickenham and Richmond. Three additional evening rush-hour trains from Waterloo arrive via that route.

The Saturday service is as on other weekdays without the extra services routed via Twickenham. On Sundays the service is hourly.[2]
