SECR Photo V.
An unidentified but distinctive station with a signalbox, water crane, bracket signal and gas lamp.
  
SECR Photo V Feedback 1: 
Could be Hastings station, which was rebuilt in 1931.  The train on the right is composed of SECR 6-wheel carriages, many of which in the 1930s had their bodies placed on 62 foot bogie underframes for use as suburban electric stock. 
 
SECR Photo V Feedback 2:  
Location is Caterham with a nice rake of SER 6-wheeled carriages.
  
SECR Photo V Feedback 3: 
From the layout of the railway and surrounding buildings this cannot be Caterham. The railway layout and the buildings on the right are consistent with Hastings, the buildings being the gas works.
  
SECR Photo V Feedback 4: 
Most definitely Caterham. The tall chimney belongs to the electricity works. This photo also appears in the respective Middleton Press book of the Caterham and Tattenham Corner branches.

SECR Photo Y.
4-4-0 number 487 on a train of bogie carriages.
 
SECR Photo Y Feedback 1: 
Location is Walmer.  Wording on the shed roof on the left is "Thompson & Son Ltd".  The carriages appear to all be of GWR origin.  The train is heading towards Dover, so is assumed to be on its way to Ashford, Tonbridge, Redhill and Reading (where it will join the GWR).
 
  
SECR Photo Y Feedback 2:
Location is definitely Walmer.  Probably the Deal to Birkenhead train.

A 4-4-0 at an unidentified station..
 
 
SECR Photo Z Feedback: 
This is an SER Class F locomotive on a down train at Grove Park in the mid 1890's.The wagons visible are SER opens built in large quantities from 1863 onwards.  The bridge in the background is Baring Road. The line was quadrupled in the early 1900's with the new tracks on the left. The footbridge was replaced by a covered specimen and a new signal box and signals were provided.
