Gallery 727: Volks Electric Railway - 6th April 2018


This shot taken from Marine Parade shows car 4 having just run through the car sheds bound for Marina/Black Rock. The completely new car sheds can be seen. The groyne is the Banjo Groyne which is of interest since it was the point from which the sea going car on rails commonly called the Daddy Longlegs started on its journeys to Rottingdean. All that shingle beach to the left of the groyne has built up over many years and when Volks Electric Railway was extended to Black Rock it ran on a viaduct to carry it across the this area. The viaduct is still there now buried in the shingle.
