Trivia

  • This station is next to what seems to be a horse racecourse.
  • This station was shown in a signalling board sneak peek on the 28th of November.
  • This is the second station to be near a stadium, with the first one being Stepford United Football Club.
  • As of the V1.4 update, Platforms 2 and 3 are unused for unknown reason. They are the express passing platforms, making this station part of a 6-way tie between Whitney Green, Greenslade, Water Newton, Hampton Hargate, this station, and Millcastle for the most unused platforms of any station at two.
  • Of the nine routes that run through this station, only three of them - R025, R038 and R040 call here, making this station a very limited-stop station.
  • You can walk from this station to Millcastle.
  • Although Platforms 2 and 3 remain unused, the non-stop platform warning announcements for Stepford Express trains passing through the station are still sounded. The same applies to Platforms 2 and 3 at Millcastle.
  • Although being an undispatchable station, there are OFF indicators at this station for Guards. Elsemere Junction and Starryloch also share this trait. This may change in the future.
  • This station was made by Thehazad9.
  • This station, together with Upper Staploe, are the only two Connect stations which do not have a route calling at Stepford Central.
