View westward towards the buffer-stops: ex-LB&SC main and suburban lines. SR Maunsell V class 'Schools' 4-4-0 No. 30925 'Cheltenham' (built 4/34) is ready to leave - when I've gone aboard! - on the Railway Correspondence & Travel Society 'Sussex Rail Tour', which went to Seaford by the main line and Lewes, back to Brighton, returning to London Bridge via Preston Park (reverse), Hove, Steyning, Horsham and Sutton. (See other scenes on this tour, 7 October 1962). 'Cheltenham' was withdrawn soon after, in 12/62, but was preserved and after an active life in preservation now has the honour of being a permanent exhibit in the National Railway Museum at York.
