Trivia

  • With a gap of 0.24 miles, Port Benton and Morganstown Docks are the two closest stations across all WaterLine routes, and likely across the whole Stepford County Railway 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 two interchanges between WaterLine and Stepford Connect. The other one is Benton.
  • If you want to, you can walk from Port Benton to Morganstown Docks, Benton, Benton Bridge and Cambridge Street Parkway.
  • 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 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 the 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 shift 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.
