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.
East Beach Street Station was the original western terminus of the line from 1948 to 1959. Also known as 'East Beach Station' and as 'East Hastings Station', it featured two platforms (one to the north of the running lines, and one central island platform) and a station building. After the line was extended westwards in 1959, East Beach Street became a through station, and was equipped with signals to permit two-train operation. The station closed around 1970. The central island platform was removed in 1981 and the passing loop was removed in 1990. However, in 2010 the passing loop was restored, and trains now pass each other at this location again. One platform (the northern platform) is still in place. The station is located on the beach, near the lifeboat station.
