Network Day with Hamish, The South East - 21st June 1986

Network Day was an "all you can eat" rail ticket that cost about £7 and allowed unlimited rail travel in the entire Network SouthEast railway network - loosely from Bournemouth to London to Kent. This (which was the first time this ticket was available) was too good to miss so Hamish and Nosher rocked up at Lymington Station early to kick off an epic journey to Portsmouth, Brighton, Battle (Hastings), Canterbury and up to London before the return to New Milton and Lymington.
