Sussex Slammer Railtour: Horsham to Arundel

3514+1805 at Horsham Had the tour been run as a 12 car formation throughout there might have been a tendency to overlook 3514, the Vep.   However, as it had a period at the front and rear of the first portion it did gain more exposure.  Having been on the second portion the webmaster/photographer caught up with it again at Horsham, the break there being required for a crew change.

Passenger information display at Horsham No jokey platform indication at Horsham. Could this be the definitive confirmation that the tour was indeed the final slam door working by Southern?

The size we are able to reproduce photographs on this website (for download time reasons) does not do justice to the original photograph which is far more scenic.  Having passed through the South Downs, the tour is now on the coastal plain as it approaches Arundel.
