So after viewing silent walkers report on this I decided to have a look, scanning goggle earth it dosnt take a genius to work out the location.

I confirmed with silent walker that this was, infact the location, (cheers mate) as I'm far from a genius.

My phone is broke so had no option but to take a camera, not a fan of doing this, but as it happens glad I did, its a nice little location.

The Kent and East Sussex, like most heritage railways, relies mainly on steam locomotives, both as motive power and as an attraction to visitors. The Railway has, nonetheless, a long history of traction by internal combustion. The Stephens era saw, of course, the early railcars and small diesel locomotives were used by British Railways. In the preservation era there has been little objection to the presence of diesels for shunting, for use on engineer's trains, for some off-peak services and in emergencies.

Sad to say I don't see that 25 ever getting restored. They've always insisted it'll be restored but keep pushing it back in favour of other projects. I went and had a look in 2008 and it was completely sheeted over, so good to see it in the flesh again.
