History

The original station was opened by the London and South Western Railway on 1 July 1863: it was reconstructed in 1969. Platforms are above the street level ticket office. The ticket office is only open at peak times but tickets can be bought at other times from a ticket machine. The station is usually unstaffed. The journey time to London Waterloo is 30 minutes (via Wimbledon) or slightly longer via Richmond.

Accidents and incidents

  • On 6 August 1888, a light engine and a passenger train were in a head-on collision due to a signalman's error. Four people were killed and fifteen were injured.[2]

On 18 June 1930 a baby boy was found in the First Class carriage of a train travelling from Waterloo by Mr Paul Broome, the railway guard. The baby was found with a note which indicated whoever left him contemplated suicide. The baby was taken to Kingston Hospital. [3] CID investigated the issue but whoever left the baby was never found.
