A working model of Seaford Station as it appeared in the 1920s is displayed at Seaford Museum.
At the end of the station, there was a signal box that was used up until the mid 1980s. The box was damaged by the salt air coming from the nearby sea and the box was dangerously unstable, therefore Seaford signal box was demolished in February 2002 with the remaining Platform 1. Only Platform 2 remains in operation now. Platform 1 is still visible but the tracks were removed in 1975.
