Playing bingo on a Sunday? 5 and 9, the Brighton line...

Or why small locos aren't often seen on the line to Cuarto de Pulgada

The headcode I always associated with the Brighton line was 4 - the Brighton Belle.

Giles,

I believe this comes from the scheduled travel time for the train Fifty-Nine minutes.

If anyone knows differently please let us know.

So I suppose you could argue that the 4 code was a result of the speeded up film version of the run. Laughing

Only if the Belle didn't carry it before the film was made. Wink

I once heard a story about the Belle motor driving car at the Little Mill Inn in Rowarth. A haulage contractor was talking about jobs involving cranes. He said that he had delivered the car to the pub, but there was no way he'd tender for the job of removing it because there was a new building on the site where the crane was positioned during the installation and it would require a much bigger crane to get it out again, so big that it wouldn't fit down the lanes leading to the village.
