Things to do in Barcombe Mills Station, East Sussex

BR made extensive use of the route through Barcombe Mills Station for diversions from the Brighton line right up until closure, with the winter of 1968-69 being particularly busy.

Because the route was not electrified, Hastings line diesel units were used for these services, providing a disinct improvement on the usual rolling stock.

In this view, 1034 and a sister-unit speed through on a Victoria-Newhaven boat train on 13 October. On arrival at Lewes, the train will reverse to complete the final leg of its journey to the coast.
