| Stations (from north to south)
The Oxted Line is a railway line in Southern England. It was originally operated jointly by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway and the South Eastern Railway. It is now part of the Southern franchise, who operate it as part of the Redhill-Tonbridge-Oxted section.
Both branches formerly continued further:
- from East Grinstead trains could connect to either Haywards Heath or Lewes. Part of the latter south of East Grinstead is preserved as the Bluebell Line.
- from the Edenbridge line, trains travelled to Eridge, a junction for Lewes or Eastbourne. The latter section is closed, but trains still operate to Uckfield on the Lewes line line. A short stretch at Isfield (between Uckfield and Lewes) is preserved as the Lavender Line.
North of Sanderstead, at the former Selsdon railway station, there was until 1983 a connection with the line to Elmers End. At Eridge there is intended to be a connection with the preserved Spa Valley Railway (Tunbridge Wells and Eridge Line).
The line between Croydon and East Grinstead was opened as the Croydon, Oxted & East Grinstead Railway (a joint venture between the LBSCR and the SER) on 10 March 1884. In part it used trackbed constructed, but never used, by the abortive Surrey and Sussex Junction Railway in the 1860s.
The East Grinstead branch was not electrified until 1987. The Uckfield branch has still not been electrified, and is worked by Class 171 diesel multiple units (which replaced the Class 205 and Class 207 DEMUs previously in use on the line).
