& Southend Line)
The new station was larger and had space for three platforms. Interestingly Leigh-on-Sea was a stop on the London Underground District Line from 1910 to 1939. Summer season excursion trains operated by the District Line stopped on the way to Southend.
The station is served by c2c and has six trains per hour in each direction between London Fenchurch Street and Shoeburyness or Southend Central. Another local railway item of interest in Leigh-on-Sea is a former electric car of the Southend Pier Railway which is now in an art gallery near the station.
