Sussex Slammer Railtour: Victoria to Brighton

1866 departing Victoria Originally scheduled as an ECS working to Lovers Walk Southern kindly permitted the train to convey passengers back to Brighton.  Leaving Victoria with a significant number of die-hard railtourers on board this was possibly both the last non-stop Victoria - Brighton service and the last mainline passenger run both by a MK1 slam door EMU.
