Greatstone-on-Sea, Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway station 'Romney Sands', RH&DR locomotive No. 8. 'Hurricane'.
This is now the only station between New Romney and Dungeness. In the past there has been a station at Greatstone-on-Sea and the halts at Lade and The Pilot.
Formerly known as Maddiesons Camp (after the adjacent holiday park) it originally alternated summer and winter with Lade Halt on timetables; this stop was very popular during the summer months.
Until 1973 there was only a platform and nameboard. The station now features booking office and passing loop. In the busy weeks of the operating season there will always be two trains in at the same time, as the driver of the New Romney bound train hands the single-line token to the Dungeness bound driver.
