It was opened on 2 May 1904 by the Great Western Railway as "Trumpers Crossing Halte", and was the only intermediate station between Southall and Brentford GWR stations. At this time, the GWR favoured the French spelling of "Halte" for such stations, because the English word "Halt" had an inappropriate meaning.
The halt closed on 22 March 1915 as a wartime economy measure, re-opened on 12 April 1920 and closed permanently on 1 February 1926. Before closing for good, the words "for South Hanwell and Osterley Park" were appended.
