Volk's Electric Railway (VER). This railway was built in Brighton, UK, in 1883. It was designed by the British engineer Magnus Volk (1851-1937). VER is a narrow-gauge railway, and as of 2012 is just under 2 kilometres long. It operates as a tourist attraction along the seafront, with Brighton Pier seen here in the background. It claims to be the oldest electric railway in the world that is still in operation. The front electric car here is the number 7, dating from 1901. Electrical power is provided by a third rail. Photographed in July 2011.
