Description:
Chelsfield railway station is in the London Borough of Bromley, and serves the southern parts of the built-up area of Orpington - Chelsfield itself, and Green Street Green. It is in Travelcard Zone 6.

The line on which it is located, and the station itself, was opened on 2 March 1868 by the South Eastern Railway to shorten its route from London to Dover. The building of the route, which crosses the North Downs, was a difficult undertaking, with steep gradients. At Chelsfield the line is rising steadily on a 1 in 120 gradient through the 597yds (543m) Chelsfield Tunnel beyond the station. The modern station building is on the Up side of the line.

Service

The typical off-peak service from the station is two trains per hour southbound to Sevenoaks and two trains per hour northbound to London Charing Cross, calling at all stations to Hither Green and then running fast to London Bridge. In the peak hours this is supplemented by stopping Tunbridge Wells to London Charing Cross services, running fast from Chelsfield to London Bridge. Sevenoaks to Charing Cross services are diverted to Cannon Street.
