me the postcard shown to the right and my friend John
took a photo of it with his digital camera.
shows a Southdown bus (route 7) going over the level
crossing at Lancing railway station. Mark (an expert on
these matters) identifies the bus as being a Leyland
Titan type that was nicknamed "Queen Mary"
guess is that the photograph was taken 1964, probably
from the roof of the "Luxor" cinema. Interestingly the
present route of the 7 bus means that it does not cross
the level crossing but goes along Sompting Road instead.
