London to Brighton Line.

The train was called The Brighton Belle.

I lived 500 ft from the railway line.

The station was Three Bridges .

The halfway point of the line.

It was a 750vDC Electric unit, picking up current from a third-rail conductor.
A complete 5 car set is now being restored to mainline operating condition and should be back in action within a couple of years or so.
