The commuter route sounds ideal. But all the talk you hear is about trains going to London. If it is privately financed how is the company going to get its money back? By charging the train companies to stop there? I'm not familiar with how these things work.

Presumably a lot of the profit comes from capturing the land value of the surrounding development sites but, like you, I'm no expert. It could be that they believe that providing the station with make planning approval for the overall scheme more likely.

Get it wrong and they will fall off.
