Kintbury railway station is a railway station in the village of Kintbury, Berkshire, England. It is situated on the Reading to Taunton Line, 58 12 miles (94.1 km) south west of London Paddington. The station was opened in 1847, along with the first portion of the Berks and Hants Railway as far as Hungerford. This was subsequently extended to Devizes and Westbury in 1862 and ultimately to Cogload Junction near Taunton by 1906. The station has a level crossing at its western end, controlled from a nearby crossing box that also remotely supervises the ones at Hamstead and Hungerford (though this will eventually be abolished and control transferred to the Thames Valley ROC at Didcot by CCTV).

Services[edit]

Great Western Railway regional trains from London Paddington via Reading and Newbury to Bedwyn provide the service here. Trains call hourly each way (with peak extras) on weekdays & Saturdays and every two hours on Sundays.[1] Some early morning & mid/late evening trains only run as far as Reading.
