Barton Stacey railway station was a small single platform halt serving an army camp near the village of Barton Stacey. It was opened by February 1940; there was a regular workers' train from Southampton by that date.[1] Little else is known, primarily because of its military association; and its whole life was during wartime — it closed by the end of the war, possibly as early as 1941.[2]
