Dave and Matt Smith’s Brighton East is a ‘what might have been’ layout is based on the old Kemp Town branch near Brighton. What if Kemp Town had retained some passenger service (this actually ceased in the 1933) and had never been shut (it closed to goods traffic in 1971), been electrified and then had a second tunnel bored to allow direct access to Lewes? This is not a prototypical rendition, the space was not available to do that, but it hopefully gives a flavour of the small space restricted terminus that was Kemp Town.
