Southern Rail Charing Cross to Hastings 1972

Colin Bell… My Uncle Bernard was a train driver (from steam to diesel) between Hastings & Charing Cross for over 40 years and i remember the No 22, travelled the route myself so many, many times. I’d often be on the train he was driving. Happy memories

Andre Martin… Spot on Colin – service 22 like you, I used to use this many times over the years, always liked the small bar, refreshment car at the rear of the train.

Colin Bell… I loved to use the buffet car, it was all so civilised and friendly back then.

Sheila Maile… So do I remember the 22

Trevor Thorpe… …..and (l think) its counterpart, the 23, from CST

Pete Fairless… Yes, used this occasionally
