Winnersh Triangle railway station is one of two railway stations in Winnersh, Berkshire, England. The other is Winnersh. The station is served by South West Trains services between Reading and London Waterloo.

The station is on the west side of Winnersh, near the River Loddon. In railway terms it is 64 miles 72 chains (104.4 km) from London Charing Cross, measured via Redhill, and 24 chains (480 m) east of the bridge by which the railway crosses the River Loddon.[1]


British Rail opened the station on 12 May 1986[2] to serve housing and offices that had been built nearby.[3] The developers contributed 20% of the cost of building the station; the remainder was met by Berkshire County Council and British Rail.


The station platforms are built of timber, the lightweight construction being to reduce the load on the railway embankment across the Loddon Valley.[4] They are long enough for an eight-car train.[1]

The station has a ticket office but it is currently staffed only on Monday to Saturday mornings. On Sundays the station is open but the booking office is closed. There is a modern self-service ticket machine outside the station building. There is no disabled access to the station: access to and from the platforms is only by stairs.


The station is served by two trains per hour in each direction off-peak (including Sundays), and up to four trains per hour in peak hours. No North Downs Line trains currently call here (all pass non-stop).[5]
