St Mary Cray railway station is in St Mary Cray, South East London within the London Borough of Bromley. It is 14 miles 57 chains (23.7 km) down the line from London Victoria. The station and some trains that call are operated by Southeastern.

It is in Travelcard Zone 6, and the station is managed by Southeastern. Services are provided by Southeastern, and Thameslink. The station has four platforms, platforms 1 and 3 being for services to Central London via Bromley South, platform 2 for services to Sevenoaks and Ashford International and platform 4 for services to Gillingham.

To the west of the station the Up and Down Chatham Loop lines give access to the South Eastern Main Line where the next station is Chislehurst. There are normally no direct trains between Chislehurst and St Mary Cray, as trains that use the connecting curves usually run non-stop between London Bridge and either Rochester or West Malling.

Access to the station is from a footbridge built over the railway. The footbridge is not part of the station(albeit painted in typical southeastern colours)with the entrance to the station built on the footbridge. The footbridge was refurbished in 2016. The station has 4 Oyster card readers rather than ticket barriers. 2 ticket machines are present.

The station originally had two side platforms with the tracks in between. It was reconstructed in 1959 and now has two island platforms with tracks on either side of each.[2]
