The unique, but sadly short-lived, Brighton & Rottingdean Seashore Electric Railway must have presented quite an amazing spectacle, even during those late Victorian days of engineering excellence. Affectionately known as the `Daddy-long-legs', `spider car' or `sea car', the railway resembled a piece of seaside pier that had broken away and was moving by itself through the sea. Although closed over one hundred years ago, interest in the Daddy-Long-Legs Railway remains strong and it has become a Brighton icon.

The book will detail the history of the Daddy-Long-Legs and feature the best collection of photographs of it so far assembled. Plans, timetables and posters will also be featured, as will associated features such as the Volk's Electric Railway and the piers assembled as a landing stage for the Daddy-Long-Legs. This will be the first book to concentrate solely on this unique and fascinating piece of British seaside history.
