The LBSCR line did not run all the way
into Guildford, but joined the Portsmouth line at Peasmarsh Junction,
for the last few miles. Guildford is still a thriving commuter
town, with a very busy station.
Sadly, trains from Platform
two, now only head towards Portsmouth, not Horsham
1) Platforms 2 & 3 in the late 1800's didn't even
have a footbridge.
2) By 1986, the Victorian station was looking very shabby!
3) Redevelopment in 1987 tidied the station up greatly.
Cranleigh Railway Dot Info
Before reaching Peasmarsh
Junction, trains go through the two tunnels at St. Catherine's
Hill. These pictures show the short gap between the two tunnels. The
new light signals, which replaced the two semaphores,
are just visible in the lower right corner.
