Teynham railway station is on the Chatham Main Line in England, serving the village of Teynham, Kent. It is 47 miles 74 chains (77.1 km) down the line from London Victoria and is situated between Sittingbourne and Faversham.
The station and all trains that call are operated by Southeastern.
On the London-bound platform, there is a staffed booking office which is open only at certain times, as well as a passenger-operated self-service ticket machine issuing permits to travel.
The original two-storey brick built station was demolished in the 1970s and replaced by the prefabricated buildings popular at the time. A manually operated crossing to allow access to Railway Cottages to the north of the line was finally replaced with automatic gates during the upgrading of signalling in December 2011.
Accidents and incidents
- In December 1861, a passenger train was derailed due to elongation of the gap at a rail joint during cold weather.
