Trivia

  • With a gap of 0.24 miles, Port Benton and Morganstown Docks are the two closest stations across all Waterline routes and across the whole SCR network.
  • Before Waterline services started calling here, Port Benton only had one platform that wasn't connected to anything else. It was just... there. Not even an entrance or exit. This made it the smallest station in the game until the Waterline services opened. Currently, the smallest stations are Newry Harbour and Airport Terminal 1
  • Port Benton is the only station where dispatchers can dispatch Stepford Connect and Waterline services at the same time.
  • This is one of four interchanges between Waterline and Stepford Connect. The other three are Benton, Beaulieu Park/Whitney Green, and Morganstown.
  • If you want to, you can walk from Port Benton to BentonCambridge Street Parkway, Benton Bridge, or Morganstown Docks via road.
  • It is possible to get off a Waterline train from this station, run to Morganstown Docks, and catch the same train due to the short distance. 
  • This station has a terminus loop like Airport Terminal 2.
  • Port Benton is the only Waterline station that has the colours of the sign "Port Benton" in light blue, indicating that it is a Connect platform, including the Waterline platforms 1 and 3 itself (Benton does not have dark blue sign for Waterline platforms too, but it is because Benton is operated by Network Rail). Dispatcher who dispatch at Port Benton will also be given the Connect Dispatcher shirt even if they are dispatching Waterline trains.
  • The loop line from Port Benton to Benton used by Connect trains is the only part of the SCR network that is overgrown. It also has old speed limit signs that seem to date back to the days of British Rail. For some reason there is a piece of grey grass.
  • This is a step-free access station but only onto platform 1, the rest of the platforms are only accessible via stairs.
  • Although being called Port Benton, there are no ports near this station.
