You are almost correct on the trains arriving there in its ghost station days. In fact it was one a week - on a Sunday. When you could get to the platform, you could actually get on the train and its next (and only) stop was Lewes. In fact there were 3 platforms at one time in the days when services arrived from all over the country. The other platforms disappeared as successive remodelings/rebuildings of the station took place. But yes, in essence your story is correct. Which is sad because London - Newhaven - Dieppe - Paris was the shortest - and probably fastest - route between the two cities.

It's funny see the opposite of what i experienced. In Madera, CA, the Amtrak station was nothing more than dirt and a warehouse type building. Very much in use, but in the early 2010s- maybe about 2011/12- there was a physical station. Took me, my sister, and my grandmother by surprise. 😂😂🤣🤣😂Thought we were on the wrong track for a long while🤣🤣😂😂🤣🤣😂😂

WTF, I started watching to hear about a train station and you start blathering about Brexit. I don't care about your opinion on Brexit. It's over, you lost, get over it and stick to the topic. There's a reason I unsubscribed and the algorithm out another one of your videos in my feed so I gave you a chance and with 30 seconds, blah blah blah...I can't believe the UK left the EU...blah blah blah...STFU already, it's over, you lost, make your dumb videos and get on with your life. There's a reason why GCP Grey and World According to Briggs and The Tim Traveler are way more entertaining, no whiny tut-tutting elitism in the content. You're done.

You've summed it up really well.In the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s railways were under attack for political reasons. About a third of the UK railways were closed in the 1960s. The minister of transport, Ernest Marples was a major Shareholder and director of Ridgeway Marples who built motorways. A lot of people fought to keeps lines and stations open. Any tactic was used. As a result it became virtually impossible to close a station. Rail travel is now more popular than ever proving the campaigners were right!

I live close to here. Some more info for those interested. You could imagine Newhaven harbour and Newhaven marine as one station, they are closer than a two minute walk. Newhaven harbour is on a two track branch line which continues a bit further along two the nearby town of seaford. You can think of Newhaven marine as a third platform which is not a through line (terminates at the end). Many years a go this was useful for long trains from London Victoria (then the gateway to the continent) specifically for the ferry. The platform was (a) long, the other platforms being shorter for the local trains, and (b) wouldn't block the through lines while it terminated there. The ferry goes from the same place today, however with customs and motor vehicles taking more space, the entrance to the port a few hundred meters away, in fact another station is closer, Newhaven town. As soon as the dedicated 'bost traina' ended many years a go there was no use for the the Newhaven marine platform (it's hard to describe but of it was open today you would have to walk out via Newhaven harbour station anyway). The tracks as still used to store trains that are not in use. Finally you can search ELvids for a video Geoff/Vicky from allthestations made aboutten years a go.
