Overview

Stepford High Street station (also called High Street) is a through station located in the Stepford City Zone, branching off of the mainline between Stepford East and St Helens Bridge. It is named after the street over which it lies.

It consists of an elevated island platform situated on the sharp curve connecting the Whitefield Branch to the Stepford Main Line. The platform gets increasingly wider along the curve from southwest to northeast, as the tracks become separated.

Stepford High Street Shopping Centre is located just west of the station.

The station's main colours were red and grey as it was originally going to serve Metro, along with the rather plain and thin white platform edge lines. Before V1.4.1 the station's pillars were in Metro red, now they are in Connect turquoise. As part of the Version 1.6 update, this station was given a full refresh and now has a glassy look with new seating, although the ramp is now steeper, making it harder for disabled people to access this station.

The speed limit throughout the station is 45 miles per hour, which is maintained to the west just before Stepford East, when it is raised to 100 miles per hour; and to the north briefly after departure from the station, when it is also raised to 100 miles per hour.

This station is served by Stepford Connect services to Stepford United Football Club, Whitefield, Stepford Central, Willowfield and Stepford Victoria.
