  • Beach tramway - 28.5.2009

    This line was used mainly to transport shingle from the beach for building works around the port. There is one photo of a rail-mounted long-range gun being tested on it, back in the 1880s, I think.

  • Newhaven Harbour Signal Box - 23.5.2013

    The Harbour station no longer serves the ferry port and Marine is effectively mothballed, although I believe it has not officially been closed. The pale blue ferry loading ramp can be seen behind the signal box. Foot passengers have to trek round from New…

  • Newhaven Town Signal Box - 16.2.2013

    This box is still functioning as a level crossing control. Most of the trains on the Seaford to Lewes branch are these 3-coach 313s, that we got when they were made redundant in London, by the introduction of London Overground's new stock. On Brighton & H…

  • Southern 313 208 leaving Newhaven Town station on 31.12.2011

    I debated whether to clone-out the supporting wire cable, that runs across 90% of the picture's width, but thought that it was an integral part of a functional urban transport intersection. Now didn't that sound pompous. By the way, the station is to the…

  • Saturday - 21.9.2013 - an unexpected arrival at Newhaven Town

    This looks like an extra service. The passengers that got off wouldn't have justified an 8-coach special on their own. They went across the road and packed out an east-bound Brighton & Hove 12 bus. Brighton & Hove Albion FC weren't playing today, so it do…

  • The train now arriving - at Newhaven Town - 11.1.2014

    I wanted to catch the action, not the train or the individuals. So posterizing the shot anonymized the people and reduced the train's details.
