London to Brighton in four minutes

For all my friends and colleagues who do the Brighton to London yo-yo (a.k.a. the pain train, a.k.a the money train) here’s a treat from the BBC archives – spotted last night on iPlayer… 

Especially choice viewing for the shots of the passengers and the stations at the start and end of the journey. 

If only it were this fast. When I moved back to Brighton almost a decade ago there was a rumour pushed by estate agents that there would soon be a 30 minute express service.

But I quite like it as it is…
