Winnersh Triangle railway station is one of two railway stations in Winnersh, Berkshire, England. The other is Winnersh. The station is served by South Western Railway services between Reading and London Waterloo.
The station is on the west side of Winnersh, near the River Loddon. It is 39 miles 35 chains (63.5 km) down the line from London Waterloo, and 24 chains (480 m) east of the bridge by which the railway crosses the River Loddon.
British Rail opened the station on 12 May 1986 to serve housing and offices that had been built nearby. The developers contributed 20% of the cost of building the station; the remainder was met by Berkshire County Council and British Rail.
The station has a ticket office but it is currently staffed only on Monday to Saturday mornings. On Sundays the station is open but the booking office is closed. There is a modern self-service ticket machine outside the station building. There is no disabled access to the station: access to and from the platforms is only by stairs.
The station is situated next to the park and ride into Reading, with buses running frequently into the town centre non-stop. It is also situated on the junction of the A329(M) so is convenient for places along the motorway and the M4.
The station is served by two trains per hour in each direction off-peak (including Sundays), and up to four trains per hour in peak hours. No North Downs Line trains currently call here (all pass non-stop).
