Volk's Electric Railway
- Contextual Information
|Further films featuring Magnus Volk's railway line, held by SASE, include [Brighton Items] ([ca. 1960]) filmed by John P. Mitchell and [Brighton Scenes] (1966?), produced by an unknown filmmaker.
Suter favoured Brighton Seafront as a subject, filming extensively on the promenade, at the West Pier, and along Volk's Electric Railway. He also took a substantial amount of footage at Amberley Museum in West Sussex, and the Bluebell and Midhurst Railway lines in East and West Sussex. He produced enough material and spoken commentary to make an hour long documentary about Amberley Museum. This material is catalogued under [Amberley Museum Part One] and [Amberly Museum Part Two]. B. C. Suter, of Petersfield, West Sussex, developed a strong interest in films and local history in the 1950s and 1960s, before taking up the hobby with enthusiasm in retirement.
Website of the association, established in 1997, detailing the history of Magnus Volk's railway, opened in 1883, with images and text.
