Description[edit] Shoeburyness
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
