A British Railways Standard Clas 5 4-6-0 locomotive with a Ramsgate train, c 1960s. The Southern Region of British Railways inherited a considerable mileage of electrified track and at the end of the 1950s embarked on a major programme to extend electrification through Kent. Work on the Kent Coast scheme is well in hand in this view, with the third rail already in place.
