Return to Billingshurst Home Page

Billingshurst is on the Arun Valley Line between Bognor Regis and Horsham and is served today by a 1/2 hourservice provided by 377 Electostar units forming trains of 4,8 and 12 carriges.  These typically run "slow" between  Horsham and Bognor.  Fast services serving Chichester, Portsmouth and Southampton also run half hourly and the trains combine in Horsham.  The 377 units were built from XXX and replaced the Class 421 (4Cig) Slam door units tha appear to have run on the line since the mid 1960's
