One minor nitpick - if you were to get the ferry, you actually have to head to Newhaven Town station, not Newhaven Harbour; why Newhaven Harbour still exists as a station I have no idea, nobody uses it and it's only a five minute walk from Newhaven Town.

The Eurotunnel service for taking your car across to France is actually in Cheriton on the outskirts of Folkestone. Dover is the main Ferry Port from the Southeast of England, nearly 12 miles (19 kilometres) away.

I'm sure that Loco Toledo wasn't happy as a result of this. :( Newhaven Marine ended up like a railway station in Mexico, where the train would hardly ever come. Then it got de facto closed.

I remember using Newhaven Marine on my very first overseas visit, taking the ferry to Dieppe. It was an enjoyable trip, but it took most of the day to get from London to Paris by that route. Via Dover/Folkestone and Calais was quicker, but more expensive, an important consideration for a student.

This train station is currently set to close on September 26, 2020, unless you're reading this in the future in which case it either closed on September 26, 2020 or, at the rate this year has been going, there was a freak earthquake that severed the station from the rest of England thereby making it impossible to physically access it to declare officially closed.

Nice story but it is not the only only station in the UK. Google for parliamentary trains and you'll find a lot more of lines and stations which are visited once a day or week (and of which the station building is gone long time ago).

At least no one will be able to say, "You can't close that station! I use it at least four times a month to get to my doctor!" or something like that.

Um, actually, Network Rail run the tracks and own the stations. Southern only manage it and run the trains on the Network Fail owned track.

The EU doesn't "need" us, we're a loss but not a catastrophic one. The regulations the EU have brought in have done a huge range of good for workers and consumer rights, you can't only focus on the bad they've done more than our government.

The ferry still runs and is a far more civilised way of crossing the channel than Eurostar or Eurotunnel / Dover.

I think one of the reasons these ghost stations and parliamentary trains exist is due to our affinity with cars, it's just that in cities and towns which have mostly been built before cars with narrow street plans make cars impractical. We own a car but commute to work on trains because it's quicker, cheaper (parking is expensive in cities) and more hassle free. Sadly due to lack of investment, our railways aren't always great (I see your Southern Rail and raise you Northern Rail) but from my home to Manchester is a 10 minute tram ride, 20 min train journey and then 5 minute tram ride. Driving in rush hour would take at least an hour or more.

Railway companies have to have these old stations and run at least one train a day to them called a Parliamentary since there has to be an Act of Parliament to allow the building of the line and these would be specified in it. So to close and remove the station requires another Act of Parliament to allow it. Long expensive rigmarole, easier to leave the platforms and run the train. The best one is a now "Parly" line Rockferry to Helsby Junction, one station 'Stanlow' is now in the middle of an Oil Refinery!
