    Meanwhile various stations that were closed by the Tories many moons ago (after counting the number of passengers that use them on the 30th February*) are still physically in existence... Even if they are legally not. * it may not have been the 30th of February, it maybe have been between midnight and 1am on a bank holiday...

    This is known as a 'Parliamentary train'. Another example is a service that runs along The New North Mainline, that connects the Great Western mainline to the Chiltern Railways network. Normally to get out this way you'd take a train from Marylebone, but once a day there is a train that runs from London Paddington and back, to maintain drivers' knowledge and prevent the section of track from closing. Thanks to ALthe channel Londonist Ltd for this information.

    Fun fact, if you are getting the Ferry as a foot passenger via the train, you now have to get off at Newhaven Town station, not Newhaven Harbour as the terminal to check in is that end of the harbour, then walk down to the Ferry dock adjacent to the old Marine station. The old Marine station also used to serve as the foot passenger terminal.

    "they haven't recognised how hassle free, quick cheap highways are", trains are much better than the roads and contrary to popular (and sometimes true) belief, more consistent for traveling. And also, Newhaven Marine has been turned into a freight terminal, so it still technically has the same use it did when it was open to passengers.

    I remember using Newhaven Marine on my very first overseas visit, taking the ferry to Dieppe. It was an enjoyable trip, but it took most of the day to get from London to Paris by that route. Via Dover/Folkestone and Calais was quicker, but more expensive, an important consideration for a student.

    This train station is currently set to close on September 26, 2020, unless you're reading this in the future in which case it either closed on September 26, 2020 or, at the rate this year has been going, there was a freak earthquake that severed the station from the rest of England thereby making it impossible to physically access it to declare officially closed.

    I think one of the reasons these ghost stations and parliamentary trains exist is due to our affinity with cars, it's just that in cities and towns which have mostly been built before cars with narrow street plans make cars impractical. We own a car but commute to work on trains because it's quicker, cheaper (parking is expensive in cities) and more hassle free. Sadly due to lack of investment, our railways aren't always great (I see your Southern Rail and raise you Northern Rail) but from my home to Manchester is a 10 minute tram ride, 20 min train journey and then 5 minute tram ride. Driving in rush hour would take at least an hour or more.
