Crofton Park railway station in 1983

The station has an automated ticket machine on the overbridge; the station ticket office is open Mon - Fri 0640-1320. In 2007 the ticket office was closed at weekends; however recently (mid-2008) the ticket office has been open on Saturdays. The Southeastern website in March 2014 advertised ticket office hours as Mon - Fri: 06:40 - 13:20/ Sat - Sun: closed.

New level access facilities were constructed to avoid the stairs to the platform (as of 2008). There is now step-free access to platform 1 (northbound) from Marnock Road, and step-free access to platform 2 (southbound) from Lindal Road. There is also step-free access to the ticket office on Brockley Road - although it is a few minutes walk from the step free access points.
