Geocache Description:

We have Motorway Mayhem and we have A-Road Anarchy. Now a series for public transport users! SideTracked caches are intended to provide quick cache-and-dashes at train stations.

Hastings Station has two separate lines, Hastings to London (Southeastern) and Ashford to Portsmouth (Southern)

The first train arrived at Hastings station in 1851 and with it began Hastings’ heyday. The station was originally V-shaped allowing for both railway companies to have separate platforms and booking areas. One side for SER trains to pass through and the other as a terminal for LBSCR services. The whole station was reconstructed in a neo-Georgian style in 1931 and only the goods shed remained unchanged. All trains now ran through the two new island platforms and a huge central booking hall welcomed travellers.

Today’s new Hastings Station has been designed to act as a landmark building in the East Sussex town's long term regeneration plans. Opened in 2004, the contemporary, blue-glass, open-plan station was built to the east of the old site, which has been demolished to make way for the new Station Plaza. A £71m mixed development of residential, educational, office and retail which will transform the derelict goods yard next to Hastings new railway station.
