Staines High Street railway station
It was opened on 1 July 1884 and closed on 1 February 1916 and was built for trains using the short West Curve (Chord) of a simple (at grade, that is on the level) three-direction junction of these two lines on a section of line on viaduct and embankment to suit the heightened elevation of line after merger with the London-oriented chord across the High Street's Iron Bridge and lower Colne and Staines Railway Bridge.[clarification needed]
When passenger services no longer ran via that chord it remained in use for occasional freight traffic until the mid-1960s after which the chord embankment was removed. A multi-level car park stands on the site of the chord with no remains of the station.
