Volk's Electric Railway, Brighton | Tourist Information


285 Madeira Drive
Brighton, United Kingdom BN2 1EN

01273 292718

Volk's Electric Railway is a narrow gauge heritage railway that runs along a length of the seafront of the English seaside resort of Brighton. It was built by Magnus Volk, the first section being completed in August 1883, and is the oldest operating electric railway in the world. Although it was preceded by Werner von Siemens's 1879 demonstration line in Berlin and by the Gross-Lichterfelde Tramway of 1881, neither line is still operational.Operated as a historical seafront tourist attraction, the railway does not usually run during the winter months, and its service is also liable to occasional suspension due to severe weather or maintenance issues.HistoryIn 1883 Magnus Volk opened a short, electric railway running for 1/4mi between Swimming Arch and Chain Pier. Electrical power at 50 V DC was supplied to the small car using the two running rails. In 1884 the line was extended a further 1/2mile beyond the Chain Pier to Paston Place, and regauged to. The electrical supply was increased to 160 V DC and the power plant was installed in the arch built into the cliff face at Paston Place. In 1886 an off-set third rail was added to minimise current leakage.

Kindest Regards, Miss Utopia Blossom A.k.a Rebecca Drury 07887 560342 01273 885585 [email protected] [email protected] "Let’s stop acting like women who choose to be feminine are somehow colluders, betraying the movement, bamboozled into thinking that they want to be feminine. Let’s stop denying women their own autonomy by telling them that their expressions of femininity are bad and wrong. Antifemininity is misogynist. What you are saying when you engage in this type of rhetoric is that you think things traditionally associated with women are wrong. Which is misogynist. By telling feminine women that they don’t belong in the feminist movement, you are reinforcing the idea that to be feminine and a woman is wrong, that women who want to be taken seriously need to be more masculine, because most people view gender presentation in binary ways. This rewards the ‘one of the boys’ type rhetoric I encounter all over the place from self-avowed feminists who seem to think that bashing on women is a good way to prove how serious they are when it comes to caring about women and bringing men into the feminist movement.” - Get Your Anti-Femininity Out Of My Feminism, S.E.

Babay Fay is born from my passion for crochet and the desire to make a difference. By the age of 8, I was knitting, doing tapestry and cross-stitching and enjoyed doing them as a leisure. In 2011, I discovered a lady who was doing beautiful pieces with crochet and showed me that it was not a "granny sport" but in fact a craft very much in touch with contemporary fashion. You will see magnificent crochetted pieces in many Grand Designers shows: Dior, Chanel, YSL to name but a few... So I learned the basics that summer and never looked back since. I have been "hooked" ever since and it is now my passion. From making cardigans, to making handbags or pet’s blankets, my experiments with my hooks together with countless yarns bring me great pleasure and I now turn this passion into a useful little business. I enjoy doing the most simple pieces just as much as the luxurious ones. As well as a passion for crochet I fell in love with the Pay-It-Forward concept which I discovered by accident on a Canadian knitting website where volunteers had left hanging from trees scarfs and hats for the less fortunate and the homeless to help themselves at the start of the winter. It really stroke a cord with me and have been using the same principal where I live at the start of winter 2015. Already planning another one for next year already as well as other Pay-It-Forward project I have on the back burner. So with this in mind for 2016, Babay Fay will be donating little hats for premature babies to the Sussex Neonatal Care -Trevor Mann Baby Unit. http://www.trevormannbabyunit.co.uk/ Thank you for visiting and let's start making pretty things!
