West St Leonards Station is on the main Hastings to London (Southeastern) line.
The chairman of the South Eastern Railway Company and other senior officials carried out a major tour of the borough. They were examining the request made by West Hill residents at a big public meeting on 21 June 1881 to build a new station suitable for them (there was then no station at Ore). They were also considering building a station at the junction of the Brighton and Tunbridge Wells lines (this was to be the West St Leonards station). The nearby West Marina station (where MFI is today) was on the rival Brighton line, and had been heavily criticised for its poor condition. The News of 2 December 1881 said that SER had announced that they had bought two acres of land for the station at West St Leonards. West St Leonards Station was officially opened in 1887 and is on the Hastings - Tunbridge Wells line, by the Bopeep tunnel.
