Volk’s Electric Railway, Brighton

Sunday 12th January 2014, 11.10am (day 871)

Volks Railway, 12/1/14

This is the oldest extant electric railway in the world, having been running since 1883. It runs along Brighton beach for just over a mile, eastwards from the pier — that station is the one seen here, in front of the Royal Albion hotel where we spent this weekend (our usual Brighton haunt, the Pelirocco, having been booked out by a party this weekend).
