Epsom Downs Branch

The Epsom Downs Branch is a railway line in the United Kingdom. The line runs from Sutton to Epsom Downs and is about three and three quarter miles in length. The line starts at Sutton in the London Borough of Sutton. It is double track for about three quarters of a mile until it reaches the approach to Belmont where it becomes single track. The line continues from Belmont through Banstead and terminates at Epsom Downs in Surrey. The "Downs" referred to in the name is the North Downs.

Infrastructure

The line was electrified at 660 V using the third rail system in 1928.
