A Day on the Southern - 26th January 2012
The 25th January saw a trip onto Southern territory for a visit to Ford Station on the South Coast. Situated between Southampton and Brighton (just to the North of Littlehampton) Ford Station also provides quick and easy access to the popular Guagemaster Model Shop. Things didn't go to plan after we planned a meet up at Southampton with a friend from Portland. A 80 year old lady drove her car off the road crossing at Brokenhurst Station causing major delays to train services to and from Weymouth/ Southmapton. After a coach connection we were finally able to continue forward to Ford via Fareham with Southern Trains. The return trip from Ford also took in Littlehampton, Barnham and Portsmouth Harbour, before picking up our First Great Western service home.
