Calling former railwaymen who remeber the old Lewes marshalling yard

I recently wrote in your letters page requesting photographs of the old freight marshalling yard at Lewes, which was closed in the late 1960s.

These were needed to assist in the construction of a model of the yard which is intended to be exhibited at the Linklater Centre, by the Lewes Wetlands, which, of course, is where the yard was.

Could I now ask if any former railwaymen at the yard could kindly contact me with any information about its workings and the purpose of its various buildings, especially the large long platform and shed in the centre of the yard?

If, also, there are any modellers, who would be interested in assisting with the project, I would appreciate a call from them.

I can be contacted by email at or by telephone at 01273 476844.
