Table 171 The Arun Valley
This is unusual, today the Arun Valley service still leaves Victoria at xx:02 past the hour (and xx.32 as well) just as it did in 1975. But today's route, via East Croydon, Redhill, Gatwick and Crawley to Horsham differs from 1975 which was via Sutton and Dorking. Horsham was reached in 52 minutes with 2 intermediate stops. Today, with 6 or 7 intermediate stops the journey takes 54 minutes. Total journey time to Bognor has increased from 96 to 106 minutes, whilst that to Chichester has reduced from 96 to 92. Portsmouth Harbour is reached in precisely 2 hours whereas in 1975 it took 2 hours 9 minutes.
