Sunnymeads railway station is a railway station serving the formerly separate village of Sunnymeads in Berkshire, England (now subsumed by the neighbouring village of Wraysbury). The station is on the line between Windsor and Eton Riverside and London Waterloo. It was built in 1927,[1] and has been unmanned since 1969. Services to the station are operated by South West Trains.

A new, very modern Shere FASTticket machine can be found in front of the disused ticket office. Credit cards can be used to buy tickets. All-day travelcards are also available to buy, as well as tickets for use on underground services in and around the London area. Sunnymeads has one of the lowest passenger usages among stations in South East England with regular services.

It has one island platform which is reached by a pedestrian bridge. On the platform there are six seats. There are no parking facilities or cycle facilities, as the station is at the end of a private road. Taxis can be arranged to pick up and drop off at this station, but there will be no taxis waiting. (The station can also be reached by a staircase from nearby Welley Road, which is a bus route.) There is a help-point for customer information, and visual displays show live train arrivals on the platform. This station is covered by CCTV which links to the South West Trains security centre in Wimbledon.

Service[edit]

The typical off-peak service is of two trains per hour to London Waterloo, and two to Windsor & Eton Riverside. There is one train per hour in each direction on Sundays.
