rustington 1986

This was the sort of regular traffic you'd have seen if you'd hung your head over the bridge in Rustington (Sussex) in the 1980s. It's all changed now! Top shot is of a class 33 with the Cardiff train, this consisted of 5 mark one coaches, compartments, the lot. It was replaced in the 90s by a 2 car Sprinter - an absolute nightmare on what could be a 3 or 4 hour journey!

Second shot is of a 4 car electric in the short lived NSE 'Jaffa Cake' livery, which was far too smart to survive. This could be seen for just a few years and was quickly replaced by a bland red, white and blue.

Shot 3 is of a class 73 electro-diesel running light, with the large logo livery.

Bottom shot is of the classic everyday blue and white slam door electric which could be seen all over the south, once commonplace and now history.
