23/02/2012

Burgess Hill has been quite well preserved, and retains a lot of character.

23/02/2012

Brighton.

23/02/2012

The rather spartan platform end view at Brighton, a far cry from steam days.

23/02/2012

Fortunately the trainshed at Brighton is still as impressive as ever.

Brighton

23/02/2012

The road entrance to Brighton, has changed very little, just not quite as cluttered as before.

23/02/2012

Wivelsfield is a real gem, very little to tell you that it's on the Brighton main line.

23/02/2012

The main entrance to Wivelsfield, rather tucked away.

The view from the Cuckoo Line looking at the Uckfield Line at Redgate Mill Junction.

15/03/2012

Long forgotten point crank and rodding at Redgate Mill Junction.

15/03/2012

The view of the Cuckoo Line at Redgate Mill Junction, looking in the opposite direction to the shot of the Uckfield Line.

15/03/2012

Redgate Mill Junction

15/03/2012

Redgate Mill Distant in Little Millhole Wood, near Rotherfield.

Rotherfield Distant in Little Millhole Wood.

Rotherfield Distant in Little Millhole Wood, looking towards Redgate Mill Junction.

15/03/2012

Little Millhole Wood, looking towards Rotherfield.

15/03/2012

Demolished occupation bridge in Little Millhole Wood, near Rotherfield

15/03/2012

Rotherfield and Mark Cross, is now two private houses, with the connection between the public and private parts of the Station being demolished, and a rather ugly extension built on to the Staion Masters House. The station was converted like this very early, at least in the early 1970's, and has hardly changed since, apart from the Goods Yard to the right which was a coal merchants for many years, including the substantial Goods Shed, but has now been swept away for housing.

15/03/2012

Local modification to the road sign, and of course the Station is situated midway between the two villages it purports to serve.

15/03/2012

Looking towards Rotherfield Village along the B2100, with the Station situated up to the right behind what used to be a local shop.

15/03/2012

Nice bit of tree clearance at Argos Hill Tunnel.

15/03/2012

Argos Hill Tunnel looking Up the line to Rotherfield.

15/03/2012

Occupation Bridge near the site of Mayfield Tunnel, which has been lost under the Mayfield By-Pass.

15/03/2012

Very Substantial Underbridge at Rotherfield Lane, Mayfield.

15/03/2012

The Underbridge at Rotherfield Lane, Mayfield is so substantial that it now supports the Mayfield By-Pass.

15/03/2012

Rotherfield Lane, Mayfield, An interesting mixture of brick and stone.

15/03/2012

Talking of substatial, this 3 Arch bridge at Knowle Hill, Mayfield is very impressive.

15/03/2012

Knowle Hill, Mayfield. The bridge was only built to serve the house and farm.

15/03/2012

Knowle Hill, Mayfield.

15/03/2012

Knowle Hill, Mayfield. Looking across the bridge from Knowle Hill.

15/03/2012

Knowle Hill, Mayfield.

15/03/2012

Funny the things you come across on trackbeds!

15/03/2012

Looking south at Uckfield, from the end of the Up Platform.

15/03/2012

Considering the re-siting of Uckfield Station, to avoid the Level Crossing, was a relatively recent occurence, the growth of trees is staggering, and very annoying.

15/03/2012

Looking from the site of the main building on the Down Platform at Uckfield, to the Crossing Box, which is now used by a Taxi Firm.

15/03/2012

Cinder Hill Tunnel, They dont come much more basic than this.


15/03/2012

Cinder Hill Tunnel



15/03/2012

Cinder Hill Tunnel. I think it was a C2X that managed to hide in here from a German Fighter.

15/03/2012

Filled in Overbridge near Hamsey Church, looking towards Barcombe Mills.

15/03/2012

Remains of the north end of Sleeches Viaduct.

15/03/2012

Hamsey Crossing. The original route of the Uckfield and Lewes line joined the Keymer Junction Line near here.

15/03/2012

Barcombe Station. First Station on the bluebell Line from Lewes. When I first visited this Station in 1976 it was so derelict that you couldnt believe anyone would try to rebuild it, but they did and it is now a very desirable residence! Looking at those sapplings this view will not be possible in the future.

21/07/2011

Rather a contrast to East Sussex, Blea Moor Box and Cottage, on a very untypical S n C day.

21/07/2011

Obviously I had to revisit Stainmore Summit, to view the replica Summit Sign erected by The Stainmore Railway Company.

 

21/07/2011

Stainmore Summit, At least I now know precisely where the Summit was.

30/11/2012

Overbridge at the East end of Midhurst Tunnel.

30/11/2012

Eastern Portal of Midhurst Tunnel. No idea who has bought it or what they intend to do with it. But I expect BRB were glad it has gone.

30/11/2012

Midhurst Tunnel

 

30/11/2012

Western Portal of Midhurst Tunnel.

30/11/2012

Huge earthworks to take The Meon Valley line over the A272 near West Meon.

30/11/2012

A closer view of the A272 Underbridge. Although the line was designed for double track it was only ever single, it is still more like a Tunnel than a Bridge.

30/11/2012

Near West Meon A272

30/11/2012

Billingshurst Signal Box has been served its last rites.

30/11/2012

Fortunately the Box will be dismantled and re-erected on the Bluebell Railway at East Grinstead.

30/11/2012

Billingshurst.
