Sholing railway station is a railway station serving the suburb of Sholing, on the edge of Southampton, England, operated by South West Trains.

Upgrades[edit]

In 2009 the station had stairs replaced and new CCTV cameras fitted. This followed an incident where a male fell down the stairs on Platform 2, breaking his leg.

Local campaigns have sought to see additional shelters installed at the station following increased usage which has doubled over the last 6 years.

Services[edit]

The only service that stops there is the Portsmouth to Southampton stopping service, operated by South West Trains, which stops once an hour in each direction. The only other service to call here is the 08:38 Southern from Brighton to Southampton Central service on Monday - Friday mornings.[1]
