Sussex Slammer Railtour: Victoria to East Grinstead
|1866, the second portion of the first leg
of the tour, was held just after Windmill Bridge Junction, East Croydon. The chill of the
morning can be seen on the ballast and on roofs!

|Whilst 1866 was held outside of East
Croydon the webmaster/photographer, who was on board, could not help noticing out of the
window this inappropriate memorial to slam doors at the side of the line! With the
second portion departing Victoria only two minutes behind the first it had to make the
journey to East Grinstead eleven minutes slower so that only one portion of the tour was
in the station at one time. The other platform there had to be left clear for
service trains to use.

|A little later than when the above
photographs of the second portion were taken, the first portion passes through Lingfield.

|The first portion of the train in platform
1 at East Grinstead between 0927 and 0932. As is becoming customary with farewell
railtours the station indicator screens were showing jokey destinations, this train was
advertised as the 0932 to Mallaig!
