A snowy Wadhurst station, with typical SER staggered platforms, photoghraphed during February 1986. Shortly after a train leaves the down platform (on the left) it will plunge into Wadhurst Tunnel, singled during September 1985 as part of the Hastings Line electrification. Although the third rails are in place, electric services did not start for another three months, during May 1986.

West Croydon A litter-strewn West Croydon station, circa 1968, looking towards Windmill Junction. The terminal platform on the left was used for the Wimbledon line trains, a line that is now part of Croydon Tramlink.
Note the elevated Signalbox.

Witley Witley station, on the Portsmouth line between Guildford and Petersfield. Trains are expected in both directions! Note the "Banner" signal on the left. These are used to give advanced warning of the position of a signal that is unsighted for some reason. E.g. the station buildings, as is the case here.
