Shoeburyness railway station is the eastern terminus of the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway line (Engineer's Line Reference FSS)[1], serving the town of Shoeburyness, Essex. It is 39 miles 40 chains (63.57 km) down-line from London Fenchurch Street via Basildon; the preceding station is Thorpe Bay. Its three-letter station code is SRY.

It was opened in 1884. The station and all trains serving it are currently operated by c2c.

Description

Shoeburyness is arranged in a through-station layout despite being a terminus. It was opened on 1 February 1884 by the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. As a result of this layout, the station has step-free access from the town's high street to all of its platforms. Platforms 1 and 2 have an operational length for thirteen-coach trains and Platform 3 an operational length for nine-coach trains.[2] A connection exists to the Ministry of Defence site nearby at Pig's Bay, to the east over a level crossing on the high street, and extensive carriage sidings exist to the west comprising 31 sidings.[2]

The ticket office is equipped with the TRIBUTE ticket issuing system. The station has sheltered bicycle storage, a taxicab rank, and a car park.[3]

The station was renovated in January 2013.[4]

When the London Underground's District line operated a seasonal non-stop excursion train service between 1910 and 1939 through to the Southend area, Shoeburyness was the terminus.[5]
