Hastings, Hastings Miniature Railway, Marine Parade Station, HMR Locomotive No. 4 'Speedy Fizzle'.
The Hastings Miniature Railway is a 10 1⁄4 in (260 mm) gauge miniature railway located on the seafront at Hastings, a seaside resort, town, and ancient cinque port, 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.
Marine Parade Station has been the western terminus of the railway since 1959. There is a single platform (to the south of the running line), a large station building and ticket office, and a run-round loop. The station is located in the centre of the tourist area of Hastings, on the main coast road, and is surrounded by hotels, attractions, rides, amusements, and restaurants. Following track relaying in early 2012, the station track-plan also features a short siding.
