I am currently researching my village, railway wise. Yes Lancing may be known as a town to many but actually it is recorded as the biggest village in England.

I am also researching the Midhurst to Pulbourgh line, long since closed and ripped up but thats another story.,

Here are some pics of the past and present station in Lancing, scroll down and its the last 2 pics, in 1925 the signal box is on the left next to the platform but today it is situated on the other side of the crossing and sits on its own,

If it helps, there used to be a strange museum near there.

Great Days of the Southern Railways

Reference to M7's based at Horsham were commonly seen on the Pulborough - Midhurst - Petersfield push pull services before withdrawal in Feb 1955

For basic M7 info check out

The Southern Way (issue 6)
The lead article is on Lancing Carriage works.


The Southern Way (issue 10) January 2010
has part 2
Anybody got copies?


The Directory of British Engine Sheds

Has track plans for:

Midhurst
Lancing Carriage works

have you got copies?

I am afraid the majority of my books related to works and sheds are out on loan till the summer with a mate researching for a model he is planning.

Perhaps members could check their railway libraries for suitable sources for images of the carriage works.


I will bear in mind your request Phill if and when I am reading southern region material

Phill I found a plan of the works and a track plan on line of the carriage works at:

http://www.northlancing.com/History/The%20history%20of%20Lancing%20Railway%20Carriage%20Works/Lancing%20Railway%20Carriage%20works%20history.htm

Its an article written as part of a GCSE history course in the 1980's


I'll see what I can do about Midhurst.  But the track plans will certainly be in one of the books quoted by Chris.

Try your local library for a copy of Chris's suggestion.  They might be even able to order them for you if not on a library shelf in the county.  If you have a current membership card you should be able to access the county wide libraries index and ordering service.

I have checked Cornwall library service this morning and I can order either the Plymouth and Bodmin books produced by the same publisher.

Thanks guys off to the library then it is. I just love all this history on railways. I since found out that Lancing was one of the first major cuts by that nice man Mr Beeching, do you know of him, :roll::thud.

You might also recall, Phill, the sad end which befell the former Lancing Carriage Works. Converted to industrial use they stood curving away from the main line to the south still very distinctive in their architecture.

Until one day the place burned down end to end. The roof fell in and I believe the walls were condemned due to heat damage.

Lancing Carriage Works, SR. RIP.

I doubt if the neighbours were to saddened

From Hansard

RAILWAY CARRIAGE WORKS, LANCING (FUMES).
HC Deb 16 April 1931 vol 251 cc338-9 338


§ 28. Mr. DAY      asked the Minister of Health whether he has received complaints regarding the emission of injurious fumes, smoke, and dust from the Southern Railway Company's carriage works at Lancing, Sussex; and what steps his Department are taking to prevent this nuisance to the surrounding inhabitants?


§ Mr. GREENWOOD     I have had no complaint since the reply to my hon. Friend's question of the 4th December, and the district council inform me that during recent months there has been no emission of smoke constituting a nuisance under the Public Health Act. They add that the smoke emitted is mainly from the electricity generating plant, which, it is hoped, will be superseded when power from bulk supply is available.


§ Mr. DAY        Can my right hon. Friend say when that reply was received from the district council?


§ Mr. GREENWOOD    I believe—I will not be quite sure—since my hon. Friend put down this question.


Don't some of us have access to some obscure pieces of knowledge :pathead
