London to Brighton, in 4 minutes

I recently found this great piece of old train footage, a speeded up train journey between London Victoria and Brighton. All very old school; the public wearing their finest, seeing the guards collecting tickets rather than the automated machines we have now, was pretty cool – I can remember this happening not more than 10 or so years back.

Seeing the train terminal in all its glory, the Pullman carriages and as the train leaves the terminal, seeing Battersea Power station, all her four chimneys bellowing smoke on the London skyline as the train leaves London and travels through the Sussex countryside before arriving in Brighton.
