'Sir William Heygate', one of two trains built for the reopening of the Southend Pier Railway in 1986, re-gauged from 3ft 6 ins. to 3ft. and reduced from double to single track with a midway passing loop, just arrived at Pier Head station, on the sweltering morning of Bank Holiday Monday, 26th August 2019. A fire on 9th October 2005 destroyed the old Pier Head station; a temporary terminus just to the south was used until the station seen here opened on the original Pier Head station site on 9th February 2009.
