The 13.45 Victoria - Gatwick Airport Gatwick Express service between Purley and Stoats Nest Junction

The 13.45 Victoria - Gatwick Airport service on the line via Redhill between Purley and Stoats Nest Junction. The Quarry Line, which services normally use, is in the foreground. Note the driving cars have emblazoned on their roofs, something not seen unless you happen to be on an over-bridge or (according to the direction of flights) an aircraft taking off or approaching Gatwick Airport. The line snaking under the Brighton Main Line is to Tattenham Corner (direction to the right) and note the railway training centre between the tracks.
