RH&DR New Romney railway station
New Romney railway station is a station on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway in New Romney, Kent, England. It has always been the headquarters location of the railway.
Until the opening of the Dungeness extension, New Romney was the terminus for trains from Hythe. The platforms were located in the area now occupied by the restaurant and model exhibition. The opening of the extension to Dungeness required the construction of new platforms at a lower level, the original platforms being at road-level, and therefore inappropriate for accessing the road under-bridge by which the new Dungeness tracks passed under the adjacent main road. The current station was built in the 1930s, and retained the split-level organisation, with high-level terminating platforms, and low-level through platforms to Dungeness. When the railway re-opened after the second world war New Romney was again a temporary terminus, until the Dungeness extension had been repaired and reduced to a single-track operation.
