Southend-on-Sea: Southend Pier looking South Southeast 2005
There is a light railway that runs the length of the famous pleasure pier at Southend-on-Sea. In the past, the railway was powered by electricity and was a twin track. Falling visitor numbers and increasing costs meant that when the trains were replaced, a single track with a passing place (as illustrated) was laid. The trains are powered by very over-noisy diesel engines which make as much noise as a battle tank!
