In Pictures: Another season underway on the Volk’s Electric Railway
As we reported a little while back the 2022 season on the Volk’s Electric Railway got underway on Monday 11th April (it was unable to start the preceding weekend due to the Brighton Marathon) with former BBC newsreader Nicholas Owen doing the official reopening. Services are currently only able to operate between Aquarium and Halfway with the section through to Black Rock closed due to council works on the foreshore which is seeing new crossings installed. Its hoped that a full service may resume at the end of May or start of June. This pictorial update from Tony Sullivan shows services running on Friday 22nd April.
