Isleworth railway station is in the London Borough of Hounslow, in west London, and is in Travelcard Zone 4. It is 19 km (12 km) south west of London Waterloo and the station and all trains serving it are operated by South West Trains.

A temporary station was located east of Wood Lane to allow a service to run until the bridge, embankment and present station were completed. The station was originally known as Smallberry Green until renamed in 1850.

Platform length at Isleworth is constrained by a bridge over a road at both ends, selective door opening is required for recent longer stock (unlike 8-car slam-door trains which fitted). Present door selection appears coarse and limited to disabling half the coaches.

Hounslow Council has proposed that the Hounslow Loop Line be part of the Crossrail route, which would see Crossrail trains calling at Isleworth station. [ [http://www.hounslow.gov.uk/crossrail.pdf A4 ] ] At present this proposal looks unlikely to be included in the final route expected to be presented to Parliament in 2008. This does not, however, rule out a future extension.

Isleworth station is unmanned.

Services

The typical off-peak service from the station is six trains per hour to London Waterloo — four via Brentford and two via Hounslow and Richmond — and two trains per hour to Weybridge westbound.
