Port Victoria station (TQ 878 738 Coord|51.431973|0.702733|display=inline|format=dms) was opened on 11 September 1882. It was located at the head of a convert|400|ft|m long timber pier. The pier was discovered to be in need of repairs in 1896, and was also damaged by a storm in November of that year. From 1900-1903 the station was heavily used, as Queenborough pier was unavailable for use owing to a fire. During World War I the Admiralty took over Port Victoria.In 1932, the railway on the pier was shortened to convert|93|ft|m and a new station building provided, the old one being demolished. The train service by this time being just two passenger services a day. In 1941 the pier was demolished and the station closed on 11 June 1951.
