Woodmansterne railway station is (only just) in the London Borough of Croydon, Greater London, England, lying immediately east of the London/Surrey border. The station is on the Tattenham Corner line 23 km (14½ miles) south of London Charing Cross. The station and all trains serving it are operated by Southern, and it is in Travelcard Zone 6. There is a single island platform, reached from a footbridge, and the ticket office, located on the island platform, is manned - from Spring 2010 - whenever trains run.
Early in 2009, there was an attempted robbery of railway money, targeting railway staff, early in the morning.
There is no PERTIS self-service 'Permit to Travel' ticket machine at this location.
The typical off-peak service per hour is three trains to Tattenham Corner; two trains to London Bridge via East Croydon and one train to Purley.
