Modern railway stations rarely have the style or features of the historic ones. Even then, many have lost key features – canopies often being the first to go, leaving passengers with less than hospitable waiting areas when the weather is typically British. So, it’s nice to see original features surviving. Built in 1840 as a terminus by the London & Brighton Railway, Shoreham-by-Sea Station became connected to the west when the Brighton & Chichester Railway arrived and the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway was formed.At one time a junction with the line through Steyning to Horsham, it remains busy with 6 trains per hour stopping in each direction. In shot is a Southern train from London, heading to Littlehampton.
