History

The London and South Western Railway opened the station in 1891. British Railways closed the station's signal box in 1966, on the day that it commissioned the then-new signal box at Ash Crossing. Ash Crossing signal box has itself since been decommissioned and demolished. BR made Wanborough unstaffed in 1987.

Much of Wanborough's train service has been remarkably unchanged over the years. A look at the historical website below shows for example:

Wanborough (from Guildford) to Ascot service Mon-Fri after the morning rush hour in the following years:

Year 1937: Times - Difficult to confirm all as times shown from Waterloo but basically at 0934, 1005 then at :35 and :05 till 2205 and then some later trains

Year 1939: Times 0937, 1007, 1039, 1109, 1137, 1237 and half hourly to 2407 (next morning)
