Description & Details

The Extraordinary Daddy-Long-Legs Railway of Brighton Description

The unique, but sadly short-lived, Brighton & Rottingdean Seashore Electric Railway must have presented quite an amazing spectacle, even during those late Victorian days of engineering excellence. Affectionately known as the `Daddy-Long-Legs', `spider car' or `sea car', the railway resembled a piece of seaside pier that had broken away and was moving by itself through the sea. Although closed over a hundred years ago, interest in the Daddy-Long-Legs Railway remains strong and it has become a Brighton icon. The book details the history of the Daddy-Long-Legs and features the best collection of photographs of it so far assembled, along with plans, timetables and posters and associated features such as Volk's Electric Railway and the piers assembled as a landing stage for the Daddy-Long-Legs. This will be the first book to concentrate solely on this unique and fascinating piece of British seaside history.

Fascinating history
A long awaited definitive book on the subject, many new pictures and insights, I live here and knew a lot about it, but there is a lot more to it. Well worth a read.
