Filmed on location on the South Central from 1988 to 2004.
Section 1: Brighton to Ashford
We start our journey at Brighton and stop at Lewes, Eastbourne and Bexhill before arriving Hastings. Changing trains at Hastings, we then visit all station stops to Ashford. Upon arrival at Ashford we see both before and after views of the new International station. Our set heads off for fuel.
Section 2: Ashford to Hastings
Our empty set arrives from Chart Leacon. We take a return journey to Hastings, again stopping at all stops. At Rye we see our service passing the windmill. When at Hastings we see a number of services arrive - filmed over a 14 year period.
Section 3: Reigate to Tonbridge
After our stock departs the sidings we join the service to Redhill and Tonbridge, visiting a number of the stations en route.
Section 4: Tonbridge to London Bridge
Weekend engineering work resulted in no direct electric service between Tonbridge and London. A replacement thumper service therefore ran non-stop between Tonbridge and London Bridge. Firstly we see the pair depart Tonbridge, then pass through Redhill and East Croydon, before arriving into London Bridge.
Section 5: Charing Cross to Ashford
Although not our booked Class 205 or 207, this last section covers a ride on the Hastings unit on a timetabled service. First we travel from Charing Cross through Waterloo East to Hastings. Changing days and on a reduced formation we then travel to Ashford International where our journey and this film ends.
