Sunnymeads railway station is a railway station serving the formerly separate village of Sunnymeads in Berkshire, England (now subsumed by the neighbouring village of Wraysbury). The station is located on the line between Windsor and Eton Riverside and London Waterloo. It was built in 1927,[1] and has been un-manned since 1969. Services to the station are operated by South West Trains.

A new, very modern Shere FASTticket machine can be found in front of the disused ticket office. Credit cards can be used to purchase a ticket. All day travel cards are also available to buy as well as tickets for use on underground services in and around the London area. Sunnymeads has one of the lowest passenger usages for a station in the South East of England served by regular services.

It has one island platform and a walk-over bridge which has to be climbed in order to access it. On the platform there are six seats on which passengers can sit when waiting for a train. There are no parking facilities or cycle facilities as it is situated at the end of a private road, so walking is necessary. Taxis, however, can be arranged to pick up and drop off at this station but there will not be any waiting. There is a help-point for customer information and visual displays show live train arrivals on the platform. This station is covered by CCTV which links to the South West Trains security centre in Wimbledon.

Service[edit]

The typical off-peak service is of two trains per hour to London Waterloo, and two to Windsor & Eton Riverside. There is one train per hour in each direction on Sundays.
