Scarborough Railway Station Scarborough, United Kingdom

Longest railway bench in the world

I know you've been anxiously fretting about this one, but I can put the issue to rest for you once and for all...

The world's longest railway bench is here on Platform 1 of Scarborough station. It's 139 metres long and can sit up to 228 passengers.
