Netley railway station is located near the village of Netley in Hampshire, England. The station is run by South Western Railway and is on the West Coastway Line. Near to the station is Royal Victoria Country Park. The line into the village from the west was built by the Southampton and Netley Railway, though by the time it was opened in March 1866 the aforementioned company had been taken over by the London and South Western Railway. The LSWR then extended the line east to Fareham in 1889.
From 1900 a branch from the station conveyed patients to the nearby Netley Hospital. Heavy casualties during the First World War resulted in the station being for a time the third-busiest in Britain.
Only one train per hour stops at each platform - westbound to Southampton Central and eastbound to Portsmouth and Southsea or Portsmouth Harbour (including Sundays). These are operated by South Western Railway. The occasional service operated by Southern stops here in the morning and evening peak.
