A new-look station at Thorpe Bay near Southend in Essex has been officially opened after a £500,000 refurbishment project.
The rail operator c2c says it's their first 'smart station' which includes an improved ticket hall, new ticket machines and extra video information screens.
The waiting room has also been refurbished and the station redecorated.
The Thorpe Bay station was re-opened by local politician James Duddridge, the Conservative MP for Rochford & Southend East. He was joined by local resident Jim Snelling, 81, who had worked at Thorpe Bay in 1946 and was wearing his old British Rail uniform to mark the occasion.
c2c runs services between London's Fenchurch Street and Shoeburyness, serving 26 stations in South Essex.
