|Opened in 1883, Volk's Electric
Railway is the 'world's oldest operating electric railway'. The brainchild of
inventor Magnus Volk the railway runs for just over a mile along Brighton
seafront between Aquarium (for Brighton Pier) and Black Rock (for the Marina).
Although operated by Brighton & Hove City Council the railway has a
dedicated supporters group, the Volk's Electric Railway Association (VERA) that
provides active assistance to the railway's full time staff and a forum for the
collection of Volk's artefacts and ephemera.
