Epsom Downs station
Epsom Downs station
Epsom Downs station is just a shadow of what it once was. Opened in 1865, it had nine platform faces, most of which were only used on race days. Tattenham Corner station is more convenient as it is much closer to the racecourse at Epsom Downs and consequently, as race traffic declined, there was no need for all the platforms at Epsom Downs station. Eventually only one island platform remained and then in 1989 the station was demolished to make way for a new housing estate and a new single platform station was built some 300 yards to the north-east. For more information and photographs see LinkExternal link During the day now there is an hourly service along the single track branch from Sutton. Here a Southern train awaits departure for Victoria via West Croydon.
