Hastings - East Hill Lift

Hastings - East Hill Lift
The East Hill Cliff Railway or East Hill Lift is a funicular railway located in the English seaside town of Hastings. The line was opened in August 1902 by Hastings Borough Council. It was originally operated on the water balance principle, and the twin towers of the upper station contained water tanks for this purpose. The line was modernised between 1973 and 1976, during which time it was converted to electric operation and new cars were provided. It is the steepest funicular railway in the United Kingdom, the gradient is 78%.

This shot brought back memories of a weekend stay with friends here in the early 80s. I had completely forgotten both my visit and my one and only ride on the funicular railway. A tremendous shot!
