Cowden railway station serves Cowden in Kent, in England. Train services from the station are provided by Southern, and the station is on the Uckfield branch of the Oxted Line. The station was destaffed in the 1990s. When the line was singled in 1990 the up platform was taken out of use and all trains now use the former down platform.

The track is not electrified, so only diesel or steam trains can run.

In 1994 a serious accident occurred just south of the station.

Services[edit]

The typical off-peak service is one train per hour to London Bridge via Oxted and one train per hour to Uckfield.
