Ockendon station is a railway station located in South Ockendon in the borough of Thurrock, England. The station is located between Upminster and Chafford Hundred and is 18 miles (29 km) down the line from its London terminus at Fenchurch Street. The station is located on a passing loop of a single track branch from Upminster to Grays. The station was opened on 1 July 1892 by the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. All passenger train services are provided by c2c, which also manages the station. Although the station is outside London fare zones 1 to 6, it became part of the Oyster card pay-as-you-go rail network in January 2010.[2]

History

The single track line through the area was opened in 1892 by the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway as part of a branch from Romford to Grays via Upminster. By the late 20th century service on the line had been reduced to a relatively infrequent shuttle between Upminster and Grays. Service levels increased following the opening of a new station on the branch at Chafford Hundred and the shuttle train service was eventually extended beyond Upminster to Fenchurch Street and beyond Grays to Southend Central.

Services

The station has two platforms, with most trains calling at the southbound platform. The northbound platform is only used when trains are required to pass at the station. The typical off-peak service frequency is two trains per hour to Fenchurch Street and two to Southend Central.
