Another one of those unthought out photos that just gets better with age. This is Rye, in East Sussex, on 19 February 1979. I love the classical lines of the station building, and the cars and bus date the picture well.
I was visiting this route often in the 70s as, incredibly, it was under serious threat of closure. Of course now it serves as an excellent route connecting with the Channel Tunnel route at Ashford and will no doubt be electrified in the not too distant future. Hopefully the line to Lydd and New Romney will open to passengers in the coming years.
