Last train for Brighton, just leaving now

Thursday, 5 September, 2013

High speed footage, recorded over a sixty year period, of the train journey from London’s Victoria station to Brighton on the south coast, that takes less than four minutes… what a way to travel to Brighton.

Although the journey has been filmed three times since 1953, in 1983, and then 2013, unless you have a super keen eye for detail, you’ll only discern fairly minor changes along the route.

Blink, and you’ll miss Clapham Junction, on the way out there.
