I will probably be at Victoria a bit earlier and I know that in the past people who have arrived early have joined me for a cup of tea/coffee at the bar which is above HMV.

Just to let you know that I have been chatting with my friend from the Hastings Flickr Group and we have a flexible agenda for the day. We will see how it goes depending on the weather and how that affects our plans.

Even though it might not be too great this week the forcast for the weekend is looking good 'at the moment' so let's hope it stays that way.

If anyone has made the mistake I have and bought this £10 ticket...it is not valid from Victoria. The £10 ticket is a Standard and is only valid for stations south of Horsham. You need the All Network ticket which is £12.50 and they will not refund the £10 nor will they transfer it to the £12.50. Who organised this and are you a shareholder for Souhern rail?

Hi Ed
Sorry about that. I originally put the All Network Downloader on and was informed by a friend that the £10 ticket would work and that they had used it before. I have changed the links back to the all network downloader now.

Their intransigence is astounding. Genuine error and they will not refund or transfer it. Once I've finished throwing my teddy about I will buy the right one.

I too have the £10 ticket - I will just get a return from Victoria to Horsham on the day to cover the gap!

I will hold my hand up as the person who said you could use that ticket as I have with out realising. I used it at the beginning of September going to and from the same destination along with some other friends all with the same ticket with out any bother.

While I'm not advocating this in this instance I would not worry to much. Please don't for get that if you have a travel card that you only need cover from end of zone 6 onwards

weather will be the following :-

10:00 NW 13 mph to 17 mph 12 C 14%(cloud cover)
13:00 WNW 12 mph to 16 mph 14 C 9%(cloud cover)
16:00 WNW 10 mph to 15 mph 14 C 7%(cloud cover)

I may stay for sunset again as it at 18:39 if anyone wish to stay

I shall stay for sunset again most likely

Lovely to meet you all...and very pleased that you were able to see Hastings at its sunny finest. It doesn't look quite so cheery today...!

Look forward to seeing your shots...always interesting to see new perspectives on familiar places....
