    This route is one of the most beautiful railways in the south of England. It is the lifeline of most commuters in the area.
    It is predominantly a passenger route with a daily aggregates train from Newhaven. This is normally Class 59 hauled JNA's.

    (Lewes Station)
    The main type of passenger train is the Southern Class 377 from Eastbourne to London. Also from Brighton to Eastbourne, the Southern Class 171 as well as the Class 377. From Seaford to Brighton, the Class 313 operates along with, yes you guessed it, the Class 377.
    Along with this, there is a Rail Head Treatment Train that runs maybe once a day in Autumn, Winter and Spring. This is hauled by Class 73/9s operated by GBRF.
    The route from Haywards Heath to Eastbourne consists of the stations Wivelsfield, Plumpton (Home to the Racecourse), Cooksbridge, Lewes, Glynde, Berwick, Polgate, Hampden Park and Eastbourne (The Coastal town).
    The route from Brighton to Eastbourne consists of the stations London Road (Just over the massive viaduct), Moulsecoomb, Falmer (Home of Brighton and Hove Albion (Up the Albion!!!!)) and Lewes, where the same stations apply.
    The route from Brighton to Seaford consists of the stations (from Lewes), Southease, Newhaven Town, Newhaven Harbour (The old junction to the Marine is now in the process of being turned into a concrete factory with a rail link), Bishopstone and Seaford.
    The route from Haywards Heath to Brighton consists of the stations Wivelsfield, Burgess Hill, Hassocks, Preston Park and Brighton. On this route, class 700's operate for Thameslink along with Gatwick Express' Class 387 and Southern's Class 377.
    This route has some very nice banks including Hamsey Banks 1 in 75 (Between Lewes and Cooksbridge). Fun for some Thrash!!!

    You might want to include all they way to Ore in your proposal, it's not too much further but lots of services terminate there.
