Ah, the good old days when the Brighton "fasts" (always thought BR could be in trouble under the Trade Descriptions Act there) served a nice cheese and tomato toastie (which, if consumed by a certain ASM from Brighton, was washed down with a large gin and tonic).
"... and the forgotten sound of a Brighton Fast will cry eerily out of time, like one of Pharaohs trumpets." Cuthbert Hamilton Ellis, in signing off his history of the Brighton. Mind you, he was referring to the possibility of sounding Gladstone's whistle! And let's not forget that for a period in WW2, they were the fastest timed trains in Britain!
