This is a shared station. The left hand track here is under the control of the private Spa Valley Railway. The right hand track is owned by Network Rail and served by Southern Railway trains in both directions on the Uckfield branch. SVR has its own part-time booking office on the platform; Southern's booking office is on the footbridge.
Spa Valley Railway

The Spa Valley Railway is a heritage railway opened in 1996. Running for 4 miles from Tunbridge Wells to Eridge, with Groombridge and High Rocks stations mid point. The line originally connected to the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway lines until it finally closed in May 1985 but in March 2011 the line was reconnected to Eridge and the main line to London.

Some of the original station buildings have now been converted to other uses, Tunbridge Wells a restaurant and Groombridge to offices.
