Change at Purley for the 10:28,arriving Tadworth 10:48. All inside TFL zones.Trains home from Merstham are two an hour but only 13 minutes apart.Direct trains take 14(!) minutes at 30 minutes past. Trains with achange take 21 minutes at 43 minutes past the hour. Out of TFL ticketneeded. £3.80 or less with a railcard to Coulsdon South, back in TFLterritory. Also useful info from Dionne, the 405 bus is another optionfrom Merstham to Croydon, hourly at 26 past, so lots of workable routesback home.
