The Southern Railway was established in 1923 linking London with the Channel ports South West England South coast resorts and Kent It was the smallest of the Big Four railway companies with most of their revenue coming from passenger traffic rather than freight in the more densely populated region of Southern England Between 1923 and 1948 both Richard Maunsell and Oliver Bulleid served as Chief Mechanical Engineers to the Southern Railway and both designed new locomotives and rolling stock to replace those built prior to 1923 The electrification of the region began in 1929 under the management of Sir Herbert Walker and when it was completed the Southern Railway was the World s largest electrified railway system Designed for long distance semi fast services on the Southern area the Class 2 HAL was a development of the earlier Class 2 BIL with some changes to the body construction Although the wooden frame and canvas covered wooden roof was retained the cab was welded steel Galvanised steel sheeting sides replaced wooden panels with internal partitions being made of plywood Powered by two 275 hp traction motors via a third rail the 129 5 long two car unit had a top speed of 75mph and weighed 76 long tons A total of 100 two car sets were built at the Southern Railway Eastleigh Works using frames from the Lancing Works The first batch of 76 numbers 2601 2676 were built in 1938 for service on the London to Maidstone and Gillingham routes in Kent This was far more than actually required for the Medway service and was the largest single batch of main line semi fast stock ever built by the Southern Railway The finish was less luxurious than the 2 BIL 2 NOL and 4 LAV Classes that preceded the 2 HAL particularly in the Third Class where seating was thinly padded drably upholstered with painted woodwork replacing the traditional polished mahogany The 2 HAL had only one lavatory per two car set as opposed to two on the 2 BIL The passenger capacity was originally 32 in First Cla

I chose to move to Maidstone in 1978 when I purchased my first house with my then fiancé having scouted around the outer...
Advantages: A practical, pleasant and prosperous town Disadvantages: But short on character and maybe even charm
...This review was originally written as a guide to Ciao members about to attend a get-together in the town of Maidstone. As a town to live in it has numerous advantages, but I find it hard to defend it against the charge of being a bit dull. Holding the Ciao Meet there was one minor attempt to liven it up. A more desperate attempt still is to be found at the end of this review, in the form...
Advantages: Location, quality of staff Disadvantages: Not close to town centre
...Reasons for choosing this hotel:
We've stayed here before and the position is good for us when visiting friends and family, being just off the M20 Motorway at Junction 7, approximately 4 miles from Maidstone town centre.
I could have used a cheaper hotel (there is an Innkeepers Lodge and a few Premier Travel Inns locally) but as a member of the Hilton loyalty scheme which allows you to...
