Riding aboard a Class 207 locomotive No 1310, this cab ride was recorded on the 24 June 1985.
Picture quality will therefore be slightly poorer than later cab rides, recorded on more modern equipment. This cab ride does, however, provide a unique record of the BR situation at the time.
After departing from Tonbridge Wells we subsequently pass through Tonbridge Wells West Station and Groombridge Station before arriving finally at Eridge Station.
In this cab ride we also are lucky enough to enjoy shots inside both Birchden Junction Signal Box and Grove Junction Signal Box, including an explanation of the levers operating the signalling, showing the workings.
This cab ride also includes shots taken of the locomotive from the lineside as well as the view from the cab.
Please note there is no formal commentary other than cab conversations which are not always audible above locomotive sounds.
