Trivia

  • This was one of 3 stations in the game's intro. Bodin took its place in the Five Million Update, but was then replaced by Llyn-by-the-Sea in V1.4. The other stations featured in the intro are Rocket Parade (BanTech HQ) and Airport West (which was replaced by Northshore).
  • This station was very under-detailed before V1.1, at which point it received a massive refurbishment. This included the addition of two new entrances: Southgate and Bridge Street. The original entrance was at High Street, which was also completely rebuilt.
  • A new depot was built next to this station in V1.1. It is used by Stepford Connect, AirLink, and Stepford Express (which doesn't stop at this station).
  • The old Rail Operations Centre was located next to this station. It was attached to the station, and the entrance to the building was at the High Street entrance. In Version 1.4.4, it was moved to Stepford Central.
    • Signallers could still get into the unused ROC as the barriers were still working.
    • The ROC was removed in V1.6 and was replaced by a tall building. The entrance at High Street was sealed off.
  • There used to be only 4 platforms at this station, with only 2 in use. It also showed that Stepford Express was originally planned to stop here while AirLink would skip, however, it's now the other way around.
  • This station is one of eight in the game that is operated by Transport For Stepford. The other 7 are Stepford Victoria, Stepford Central, St Helens Bridge, Morganstown, Benton, Leighton City and Llyn-by-the-Sea.
  • This station resembles London Bridge Station, a station located in London, UK.
  • Before V1.1.5, this station was not a dispatchable station.
    • This station replaced New Harrow when it was able to be dispatched.
  • This is one of the most popular dispatching stations due to the fact that one Dispatcher can dispatch all the Stepford Connect trains that stop here. Before V1.1, Coxly had this property. Upon the release of V1.4, as Stepford Express does not stop here, the popularity decreased and transferred to St Helens Bridge as you can dispatch both Stepford Connect and Stepford Express service the same time at St Helens Bridge. Still, it is still common to find Dispatchers at Stepford East's Stepford Connect platforms.
  • This station is also a very popular station for passengers as it is one of the busiest stations in the game, as well as it being a good place to trainspot passing Stepford Express services and trains coming out of the nearby Stepford Depot. Additionally, the frequent appearance of a Dispatcher here makes it a more social station.
  • There was at one point a bug that would cause Dispatchers to be flung into the lifts by departing trains. The only way to get out was to respawn. It is unknown if this was ever fixed due to its difficulty to replicate. It is still possible to be flung while Dispatching at multiple stations.
  • Due to a good network of roads in the area, it is possible to walk to all stations in Stepford City and even Elsemere Pond.
  • Dispatchers often rush to this station because the first slot is Platforms 1-4 (Stepford Connect) and the second is Platforms 5-8 (AirLink). The first slot will see almost all trains in the Stepford Zone making it a very busy slot.
  • There isn't typically an AirLink Dispatcher here unless AirLink is being "flooded" as Stepford Connect is typically much busier.
  • This station is the largest through-only station on the network.
  • This station has step-free access.
  • This is the only station in the whole game to have a stop marker with the number 7 on it.
  • There are 6-7 car Stop Markers on the Stepford Connect platforms, and further S Stop Markers, even though prior to V1.8.2, the operator had no trains to such length.
    • In the aforementioned update, the Class 717 with 6 cars was released on Stepford Connect, finally giving the stop markers a use.
    • The S Stop Markers still remain unused, unless a player overshoots the correct stop marker.
  • Charlie_RBX previewed this station with a facelift, including an upgraded main concourse and new models of ticket barriers on 18/09/2021.
    • This later released on 05/12/21 as part of V1.8, expanding the concourse, adding new station features, revamping Stepford Depot with extra offices for Supervisors+ which can be accessed from the Bridge Street Entrance.
  • This station has been upgraded/facelifted three times in the past, once in V1.0 from 6 platforms to 4, in V1.1 from 4 to 8 and again a facelift in V1.8.
  • Managing Director Charlie_RBX revealed this station to receive OHLE electrification and curvature of platforms on 28/05/22.
    • This update added 7-8 car stop markers to AirLink platforms, hinting future 7 and 8 coach trains on AirLink.
    • This also means that Stepford East is the only station to have 8 car Stop Markers in the entire network.
