Rainham station has changed substantially over the years and has recently had an upgrade to add a third platform allowing trains to start from Rainham.

In the early 1990s a new station ticket office was added, the red building that is currently in place.

In 1951 I used to stand by the railings next to the signal box and train spot. I think one of the signal box men was Mr Sym and he used to tell me what was on its way towards the station. It was interesting watching him turn the large wheel to open and close the crossing gates. Just further up the line toward Gillingham we could walk across the line and get to Berengrave Lane just adjacent to the railway bridge there. No electric trains in those days.
