A bit more on the seafront walk

Whilst walking the undercliff Jerry and I spoke of the other electric railway of Magnus Volk – the Daddy Long Legs, which provided a short-lived holiday experience at the end of the 19th century and just into the 20th.

It ran from the east end of Brighton for 4 miles or so to Rottingdean on a track that spent most of its time under the waves.  To keep the passengers dry it was elevated on long legs.

Borrowed from this website which I heartily recommend.
