Felixstowe station sign

Felixstowe was once Felixstowe Town station, but now just Felixstowe with the closure of the Beach and Pier stations. In its heyday the station saw up to twenty services an hour but now that's down to one, so the original station building is hardly necessary. It's been preserved, though, and found new life as Great Eastern Square shopping centre, while the operational station uses the end of one of the original platforms.

Looking back along the branch from behind the buffers:

The other platform face can still be made out:

From the original Felixstowe Town building, we look across what is now the carpark to today's terminus:
