Castle Bar Park station is in the London Borough of Ealing in west London, England and is in Travelcard Zone 4. The station is 12 km (7½ miles) north west of London Paddington on the Greenford Branch Line. The station and all trains serving it are operated by Great Western Railway. When opened it was called Castle Bar Park Halt.

The ticket office opens only morning peak hours from Monday to Friday; ticket machines were removed in 2005 due to persistent vandalism. New aluminium and perspex passenger shelters and a replacement "help point" machine were added in 2006. There is also a footbridge linking the platforms so step free access is limited to the Greenford bound platform only.[3]

As of October 2008, Oyster "pay as you go" can be used for journeys originating or ending at Castle Bar Park.[4]

Service[edit]

The service from Monday to Saturday is two trains per hour towards Greenford northbound and two trains per hour to West Ealing southbound.

There is no Sunday service.
