Maryland railway station is located in Maryland, an area of Stratford, in the London Borough of Newham in east London, England. It was originally known as Maryland Point, and is just east of Stratford station in Travelcard Zone 3, on the Great Eastern Main Line. It was first opened on 6 January 1873, adopting its current name on 28 October 1940. Of the four platforms, those serving the fast lines are only in operation during engineering works affecting the slow lines.
The station is one of the primary rail access points for the residential areas in the north of Stratford and the south of Leytonstone in east London. The area surrounding the station has seen much redevelopment in recent years, and has been redoveloped for further improvements.
Like all of the other Shenfield Metro slow service stations (apart from Stratford, Romford and Shenfield) fast trains on the Great Eastern main line don't usually stop at the station despite the station, like all the others, having four platforms.
