At the Southern end, three stations are separated by two long tunnels (on the south coast line to Eastbourne and Brighton). At Bopeep Junction, our “4-CEP” EMU – in the much lamented “Jaffa cake” colour scheme – turns north through the East Sussex countryside through Battle to Tunbridge Wells, the latter also sandwiched between two tunnels . The character of the line changes at Tonbridge as we join the main artery from Ashford, Dover and Folkestone. Two lines become four at Orpington – the start of the commuter belt. By the time we race toward London Bridge, our fast lines are lost in a bewildering maze of tracks. Finally, after traversing the junctions with Cannon Street and the Thameslink line, we cross Hungerford Bridge and enter platform 5 at Charing Cross – the most central main line terminus in the capital! The Hastings line became famous for its tunnels. Many were singled to allow the passage of standard width stock at the time of the 1980s electrification.
