The building straight ahead, blending in well with the 1980s executive homes on this estate, is in fact Epsom Downs station - it also incorporates a children's nursery. The branch from Sutton was opened in 1865 and at first prospered as the closest station to Epsom racecourse, but that role was usurped by the Tattenham Corner branch in 1901. Since then, the line has had a purely suburban role serving the important town of Banstead but ending nowhere in particular. In 1989 the line was cut back to make way for new housing development, which at least must have offered the prospect of additional commuter traffic.
