Milford railway station is a stop on the Portsmouth Direct Line, serving the village of Milford, Surrey in England. It is 36 miles 21 chains (58.4 km) down the line from London Waterloo.

Services[edit]

There is an hourly service to Haslemere southbound and London Waterloo northbound.

At approximately level gradient but adjoining woodland the track occasionally suffers from leaves on the line resulting in poor traction for trains, in extremis leading to overshoots on stopping and difficulty moving off.

Footbridge and level crossing[edit]

The station has a railway-designed footbridge open to all for crossing and an adjoining level crossing controlled by safety barriers, as depicted.

Brief Encounter[edit]

The station has the same name as the fictional station having dropped its suffix in the successful film Brief Encounter (1945). The platform scenes were filmed at Carnforth station in Lancashire.[1]
