Is There A Worse Station Than This In London?

I took the last train for some time to North Sheen station, which I had been told was bad, but I couldn’t believe what I found.

This Google Map shows the station layout.

  • It must have one of the longest lists of fundamental faults of any station.
  • To get into and out of the station, you need to climb up and down a step footbridge.
  • It has the worst step-free access I’ve ever seen.
  • There were no staff.
  • It has an inconvenient level crossing.
  • There was no car parking or even anywhere to drop and pick up a passenger.

In some ways, what makes matters worse is that the station has ten-car platforms which at times must bring large numbers of passengers.

The only good thing about the station, was that a ticket machine was on the platform.

It is a truly dreadful station.

  2. It’s not as grim as the ‘scenic’ walkway to Angel Road station from Conduit Lane.

  3. I’ll agree Angel Road is bad, But Angel Road only handles about a twentieth of the passengers that North Sheen does. It’s also going to be rebuilt.into Meridian Waters.
