Ref 313 14 Oct 1963 This lengthy train included 7 open wagons and guards van heading towards Havant. With the imminent closure of the Hayling branch line, the regular mixed train was used to remove the goods vehicles from Hayling Station goods yard. This train was the 14:58 train to Havant.
Like most small branch lines, freight was conveyed with passenger services to make more efficient use of the railway. The passenger coaches here are ex LSW stock. Kindly donated by Peter Paye. The Hayling Railway (The Oakwood Press)
