Trivia

  • At the western end of the platform is the River Ben, and at the eastern end is the interchange of tracks going to and from Stepford Airport Parkway and Hampton Hargate.
  • Before V1.1, Benton Bridge was not a dispatchable station.
  • R009, R026 and R036, which are exclusive to the Class 68, are not scheduled to stop at this station.
  • A lot of people on the Discord server think this station should be remodeled to decrease traffic.
  • You can walk from this station to Benton, Port Benton, or Cambridge Street Parkway via road. However, the road connection leading to Benton runs through a railway crossing on the Stepford Express Line, which lies on active track, and usually despawns pedestrians crossing it.
  • This station has a 2 car stop marker for the Class 158/9, currently the only station on Stepford Connect that does.
  • This station used to have a more futuristic design.
  • If you look on the footbridge, there are old signs. The sign for platform 1 says "This platform for trains to to Stepford Central via Coxly" and the sign for platform 2 says "Trains to Stepford Airport and Leighton". The signs don't mention St Helens Bridge, Stepford Victoria, Edgemead, Westwyvern, Llyn-by-the-Sea, Beechley and Willowfield.
  • Prior to V1.7, this station only had 2 platforms.
  • On the 28th of August 2020, Charlie_RBX sneak peeked an upgraded Benton Bridge saying "Another station with a bit of an upgrade! All coming soon in the next big SCR update". In the sneak peek, there are new commercial buildings, including one named "The Daily Sausage", as a reference to the newspaper in Mind the Gap.
  • On the following day (29th of August, 2020), a sneak peek of Benton Bridge (the structure) was posted, showing that the bridge has been upgraded into a large suspension bridge, scenery updates around Port Benton, electrification on the Morganstown bridge and several static ships in the surrounding waters.
    • However, some people criticised the new bridge, saying that the gradient of the bridge is too steep for trains and therefore not realistic.
