Hastings, Hastings Miniature Railway, Rock-a-Nore Station.
The Hastings Miniature Railway is a 10 1⁄4 in (260 mm) gauge miniature railway located on the seafront at Hastings in East Sussex, England.
Opened in 1948, it remains a popular tourist attraction to the present day. The line was re-opened in the summer of 2011 after a period of reconstruction and restoration, which coincided with a forced closure of the eastern part of the line, to facilitate building work on a new art gallery adjacent to the railway.
Rock-a-Nore Station is the headquarters of the railway. Originally it had one platform, later developed to two; it has now returned to a single platform. A turntable was installed around 1960, and removed around 1980. In 2011 the turntable was restored. The station has always featured a station building, engine shed, carriage shed, and sidings. Since 2011 it also features a purpose-built engineering workshop. The station is located in the fishing industry's area of Hastings, and is surrounded by fishing net houses, fishing boats, and the fishermen's church and museum.
