West Byfleet railway station serves West Byfleet and Woodham, England, and is a suburban stop on the South Western Main Line served by the Alton Line and Waterloo to Woking stopping services operated by South West Trains.
The station has three platforms, one of which (platform 2) is rarely used in line with nearby other South West Main Line stations. The station competes in the broadest sense, not of train company, with faster services at the next nearest station on the line, Woking station.
The station was upgraded to increase disabled access, with lifts to both platform islands and a new bridge, work accomplished 2008-2009.
At off-peak times there are 2 trains per hour in each direction on the Waterloo/Woking via Surbiton service and 2 trains per hour in each direction on the Alton Line.
The station frontage appeared in the 1977 movie 'Adventures of a Private Eye' starring Christopher Neil.
