Rainham (Essex) railway station is on the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway line, serving the town of Rainham in the London Borough of Havering, east London. The station is known as Rainham (Essex)[3] to distinguish it from Rainham railway station in Kent.

It is 12 miles 50 chains (20.3 km) down-line from London Fenchurch Street and it is situated between Dagenham Dock to the west and Purfleet to the east. Its three-letter station code is RNM and it is within Travelcard zone 6.

It was opened in 1854. The station and all trains serving it are currently operated by c2c.


The station is located on Ferry Lane, close to the junction with Wennington Road. Major industrial works surround the station, as does Rainham Creek, a local industrial river. Access is provided from the station building to the country-bound platform; in order to access the London-bound platforms, a pedestrian bridge must be crossed. There are ticket barriers at the front entrance to the platform, restricting platform access to ticket-holders only.

A number of level crossings are situated on the line between Barking and Grays. The roads served by the crossings have now been severed by the High Speed 1 line between Ebbsfleet and London St. Pancras, but the level crossings are still in situ, such as the one on Ferry Lane. This can be used to access the London-bound platform. A number of footbridges and road bridges have been built to replace them.


The typical off-peak service frequency is:

During peak times there are additional services including some connecting to other sections of the line beyond Grays.


London Buses routes 103, 165, 287, 372 and 652 serve the station.
