Twyford Station – 26th April 2018

I went to Twyford station to get the train to Henley-on-Thames.

The station seems more of less ready for Crossrail.

What isn’t ready is the rail service to Henley-on-Thames station.

There are two trains per hour (tph) on the branch line and the trains take twelve minutes with two single-platform intermediate stations.

This is one of those branch lines, that need four tph to prise people out of their cars it is this one.

The two terminal platforms at each end can each handle four tph, it’s just that there is no passing loop on the line in between.

These are some pictures I took on the branch line.


  1. It is a tidy branch line.
  2. There is only one level crossing.
  3. Henley-on-Thames station has a reasonably long platform.
  4. There appears to be more space for a second track, South of the Thames, rather than at the North.

With their purchase of Class 769 trains, GWR could be using some to provide direct services to London from this branch.
