I am surprised that the photo of your Grandfather shows a poster board with S & M at the top in the 1950's. I wonder if it survived ?
Regards, Colin.

Sorry - Quick answer off-topic for Captain Bubble.
The rails are outside Golf Links station ( which still exists) and run north towards Rye along a road to a bend. It is the red roofed building near the river Rother due west of the golf club.

I'll bet it was a fair old bone shaker of a ride! R-

Thanks Hunslet, sorry for the drift!

Yup, that rail bus is delightfully eccentric but I think I read in the KESR museum that they were not very popular or successful.

Hi Brian
I like the new project. Can't wait to see it.
As far as I know all of the Colonels line were 'light railways' (built under Light Railway Orders, rather than by act of parliament. LROs specified top speed of 25mph.
Most of our present day Heritage lines also operate under LROs and they are limited to the same maximum speed.

One of the bridges was so bad that people got off and walked over.

Now a road bridge.



Melverley bridge photographed by me in 2008.
