Westgate-on-Sea

 


20th June 2007

 

The ''down'' side ticket office at Westgate-on-Sea has managed to avoid having any of its windows being boarded

up, and it still retains sash-style frames. The brick wall of the building's eastern elevation can be deciphered on the

left-hand side, and the diagonally-laid timbers are also evident. This 20th June 2007 view confirms that the original

style roof valance is retained, and that the entranceway remains protected by a canopy. David Glasspool

No. 375712 trundled in from Ramsgate on 20th June 2007, with a Victoria-bound service. At Faversham, the

four-vehicle formation would attach to the rear of another Class 375 which had come in from Dover Priory.

This splitting/re-attaching process is also a common occurrence at Ashford, where formations disappear off to

either Dover Priory via Folkestone, or Ramsgate via Canterbury West. In this view, on the extreme right, it is

also possible to see the original platform ramp, showing how far the platforms were later extended. David Glasspool

A westward view, also from 20th June 2007, reveals piecemeal platform heightening on the ''down'' side, and

the upward-slanting canopy of the ''up'' side waiting shelter. David Glasspool
