1961-2 Steam Rides: London Vic -Oxted-Tun.Wells West both ways. Two steam-hauled journeys, into Surrey and Sussex.
Firstly: London Victoria – East Croydon – Oxted – East Grinstead – Groombridge – Tunbridge Wells West. In passing we see the old complex of lines between Selhurst and Croydon; visit the long-gone 4-platform upper station at East Grinstead; and the line onward via Forest Row. Those who know today’s Victoria – East Grinstead route will see many other differences from today.
Secondly: The journey from Oxted, via Edenbridge Town to Tunbridge Wells West. Most of this route is now “The Uckfield Line.” Some is now part of the heritage Spa Valley Railway.
Apologies to residents of Royal Tunbridge Wells for abbreviating the name in the title of this upload. It is rather long.
