Tooting railway station is in the London Borough of Merton in South London, in Travelcard Zone 3. The station is served by First Capital Connect and (occasional) Southern trains, and is on the Sutton Loop.
The station opened in 1894 as 'Tooting Junction', replacing an early Tooting Junction station slightly further West that dated from 1868. It was renamed simply 'Tooting' in 1938, following the closure of the branch line from Tooting to Merton Park to passenger traffic in 1929.
The typical off-peak service from the station is 2 trains per hour to St Albans via Herne Hill and London Blackfriars (clockwise around the loop) and 2 trains per hour to Sutton via Wimbledon (anticlockwise), run by First Capital Connect. Additionally, Southern runs between 3 and 5 services per day between Wimbledon and London Bridge.
