West Chiltington.
We have very few photographs of West Chiltington. Here they are:


Left - E1 ‘Strasbourg’ leaves West Chiltington with a short coal train for Storrington.



Right - a scratchbuilt Manning-Wardle shunting a few wagons over the cattle creep (modelled on one at Culver Junction near the Bluebell line).



Left - Terrier no 679 (ex ‘Knowle - now preserved on the Kent and East Sussex Railway) with a motor-train coach, leaves the tunnel, heading into the station. The tunnel mouth is based on the south end of the Kemp Town branch tunnel.



Right - a train of Billinton six wheel coaches behind D1 ‘Rottingdean’ heads into the tunnel.








Left - a rather grainy image of the station building, modelled on the (still existing) Burgess Hill ticket office.




Right - E3 no 165 heads over the cattle creep.




Left - Terrier and motor coach draw into the platform.




Right - the station building, and signal box (based on the box at Ardingly)




Left - a very early shot of the layout under construction, with an unpainted D3 hauling the set of six-wheelers.


Right - another view of the layout under construction.




Left - an unpainted E3 and a couple of scratchbuilt wagons.




Right - a shot of the road bridge, based on a structure on the Three Bridges to East Grinstead line.
