Small town in South West London, nearest main town would be Twickenham or Richmond. The station is on the line between Teddington and Twickenham.

Usual traffic consists of Class 455s on trains to Waterloo via Richmond or via Kingston along with the occasional set of empties into Strawberry Hill Traincare Depot and in the peaks trains to Shepperton which have come via Richmond.
Very quiet station during the day in a nice area. Not sure what it is like after dark but during the day it is a fine location.

Photographic notes
Photographs tend to be better from the down platform (towards Teddington) as trains to the Depot tend to run down the up line to get into the depot.
