National Rail list it as Rainham (Essex) due to it being previously in that county prior to boundary changes.

The station was opened in 1854 as part of the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway and is down the line from London Fenchurch Street.

The station is located on Ferry Lane, close to the junction with Wennington Road (the B1335). Major industrial works surround the station, as does Rainham Creek, a local industrial river. Access is provided from the station building to the Eastbound [out of London] 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 Barkingmarker and Graysmarker. The roads served by the crossings have now been severed by the Channel Tunnel Rail Link between Ebbsfleetmarker and London St Pancrasmarker, but the level crossings are still in situ, such as the one on Ferry Lane, Rainham. This can be used to access the London-bound platform. A number of footbridges and road bridges have been built to replace them.
