Langley railway station is a railway station in Langley, a suburb of Slough, Berkshire, England.

The station is served by local services operated by Great Western Railway 16.25 miles (26.15 km) west of Paddington towards Reading. It is planned to be served by Crossrail from 2018.[1] Network Rail is developing plans for a new rail tunnel, leaving the Great Western main line just east of Langley, connecting to London Heathrow allowing a rail-air link from Reading.[2]


The station is on the original line of the Great Western Railway which opened on 4 June 1838, but the station at Langley was not opened until 1845.

From 1 March 1883, the station was served by District Railway services running between Mansion House and Windsor. The service was discontinued as uneconomic after 30 September 1885.[3][4]

Adjacent to the station is the site of the former Langley Oil Terminal, last operated by EWS.

Accidents and incidents

On 1 March 1937, a passenger train and a freight train collided at Langley. One person was killed and six were injured.[5]


There is a basic half-hourly Great Western Railway service (including Sundays) eastbound to Paddington and westbound to Reading and Oxford.[6]
