|Myself about to jump off Ouse Valley Viaduct, early 1980`s
|The Brighton steam crane about to lift the 30 ton footbridge
linking Lovers Walk with what was the old Brighton signal box
|The bridge is now held by the steam crane
|A view from the footbridge in the previous shots, Brighton had ten platforms at this time, it now has eight and the layout has changed drastically. Unfortunately I can`t get a picture from the same location
|A site never to be seen again, two steam cranes at Haywards Heath
|The old train indicator on Brighton station
|The old Electrical Control Room at Three Bridges, built in the 1930`s to control the third rail and manned all year round. Demolished in the 1980`s, a horrible new building does it`s job now from Brighton
|Faygate signal box, one of the smallest on our area
|Hastings signal box
|Myself jointing a cable at Star Lane near Coulsdon. The train is the express to Brighton and it`s doing 90mph! Our safety people would have something to say to me about my place of safety!
|Graham Bowles, Brian Jenner and Mark Catford larking around at Star Lane substation
|We see lots of wildlife on the track - most of it dead!
|The killing fields of Balcombe!
|Coulsdon North signal box, now demolished
|Inside Coulsdon North signal box
|This was how we joined cables together, a Cadweld Joint, a mixture of magnesium, aluminium and copper would ignite, melt and harden around the two ends. Very dangerous but very exciting!
|From the other side, this was at the old Copyhold Junction
|The Brighton steam crane stabled, it was kept in steam all year round
|The old metal ladder to get down to the Redhill Line tunnel mouth
