History[edit]

It is just north of St Leonards West Marina railway station, a now disused station that was the earliest station serving the area.

Rail layout[edit]

The Hastings Line (operated by Southeastern) joins the East Coastway Line (operated by Southern) immediately east of West St Leonards, at Bo-Peep junction, just before entering Bo-Peep tunnel. Plans were made for platforms to be built on the East Coastway Line for interchange but Hastings Borough Council decided that there was no economic or passenger benefit as interchange was already available at the next station (Warrior Square).
