Frimley railway station is in the town of Frimley in Surrey, England. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by South Western Railway. It is situated on the Ascot to Guildford line, 37 miles 48 chains (60.5 km) from London Waterloo.

History

The line through Frimley is a link between the Waterloo to Reading line at Ascot and the Waterloo-Alton line at Ash Vale, although the line south from here initially joined the Woking to Basingstoke main line at Sturt Lane Junction. The station building was built in 1877 by the London and South Western Railway to serve this line, with the link to Ash Vale being opened the following year. The line was later electrified in 1939.[1] The line becomes single south of the station and remains so as far as the junction with the line from Brookwood just short of Ash Vale station.

Services

Frimley is served by trains between Ascot and Guildford via Aldershot; these operate every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday, and every 60 minutes on Sundays. On Mondays to Fridays, there are three trains per day that continue beyond Ascot to London Waterloo in the morning peak period, and two from London in the evening. At other times, passengers are required to change at either Ascot or Ash Vale to reach London.[2]


Services are run using a four carriage Class 450, which 2 cycles can be carried per train.
