Moulsecoomb

Moulsecoomb station, on the LB&SCR line from Brighton to Lewes, was not built by that company, nor indeed by the Southern Railway, but was built by British Rail to serve the large Moulsecoomb estate that was developing during the 1970s and 80s. The station, opened for traffic on 12th May 1980, consists of just two platforms, some buildings and a footbridge with no sidings nor signalling.

The photographs on these pages were all taken on 15th September 2004.

The station is frequently unmanned, so an information point is located on each platform, with instructions also provided in braille.
