    Barnes railway station is in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, in south London, and is in Travelcard Zone 3. The station and all trains serving it are operated by South West Trains.

    The station, seven miles from Waterloo, was opened on 27 July 1846, when the line to Richmond was built. When the first section of the Hounslow Loop Line was opened on 22 August 1849, Barnes became a junction station. On the London side of the station there are four tracks; one pair turns off along the Loop Line here.

    The Grade II listed ticket office is adjacent to Platform 1. It was built by William Tite in 1846 and is the only survivor of a series of brick-built Tudor-style stations on the Richmond branch. It is now privately owned.

    The Barnes rail crash, in which 13 people were killed and 41 injured, occurred near this station on 2 December 1955.[2]

    It is the nearest station for Rosslyn Park F.C. grounds, Roehampton University, Roehampton Club and Queen Mary's Hospital.

    Platforms and rail services

    There are four platform faces: the general service pattern sees fast trains pass through on the South Outer platform (platform 4) and the north face of the central island (platform 2), while stopping trains for both Richmond and the Loop Line use the remaining platforms. (On Sundays all trains stop on the island platforms.) Station buildings are on the central island, which is accessed by a separate footbridge alongside Rocks Lane.

    The typical off-peak service from the station is:
