VER01:007CC Volk's Electric Railway, Brighton 1938


Magnus Volk built the first public electric railway that still operates today on Brighton Seafront, opening in 1883. This view taken by Jack Turley, shows the bathing beach before the tidal effects of the sea drew up the shingle underneath the timber structure for the rails at Paston Place, Banjo Groyne. The Volks Railway car number 9 then, became number 2 at the time this modern postcard was published.

This was our first use of a card intended as a charitable postcard, providing funds on sales of the card through the Volks Electric Railway Association.

During 2008, Volks Railway celebrated the 125th Anniversary of the railway, and published its own card for the occasion although using an interior shot of the Southend car and not an original Volks car, its available from tourist offices, museum outlets and the tickets offices each end of the line when running during the summer seasons.
