The Anonymous Widower

Eridge Station – 3rd May 2022

I documented the work at Eridge station in Eridge Station – 12th July 2021 and it was finished a few days ago.

Note.

  1. The platforms can take ten-car trains.
  2. The lift on the National Rail side of the station.
  3. The restored iron supports for the roof.
  4. The two waiting rooms; one by the ticket hall and the other on the platform.
  5. The well-appointed toilets, with quirky signs and the all important coat hook.
  6. There’s even an Amazon Hub.

It certainly is a quality restoration and upgrading to step-free access.

Possible Future Electrification

In Uckfield Third Rail Is NR Priority, I discussed ways that the Uckfield Branch could be electrified.

This picture shows the platforms from the Spa Heritage Railway.

Note.

  1. All National Rail services call in the far platform.
  2. The platform will take a ten-car train.
  3. There is plenty of space for a single extra third-rail between the tracks.

If the power were only switched on whilst trains were in the platform, surely it would be safe.
