That's cool and all, but that article sucked. Where did the train go? Did It just go out and back? Did it go somewhere and let the people off, and then load them back up, like maybe an island with picnic spots? Why, exactly did people use it?Why, exactly did people like it so much?

It basically tells you when it was built, who built it, the cost of a ride, and why it eventually stopped getting used, and that's about it.

Did it go there and unload? Did it go and immediately turn back? It's not really descriptive. Was there a terminal at the other end? Did they only load on the Brighton end? Was it used kind of like a ferry, just to get people to Rottingdean, or was it just for the whole "luxury" thing?

I absolutely LOVE this GIF. Been telling my wife about it for like 6 months, and nobody ever posted it. :-) All the searches I was doing were bringing up random results...

For some reason, I was totally drawing a blank on the term 'rim shot'. Every time I tried to think what it was called, my mind went blank. Probably the 'rona.

You might want to be happy you were just drawing a blank.  Was talking to one guy that responded to some dad joke crap with "Yeah we need a monkey rimjob for that one."   I still won't let him live that down - who could?

I was kind of imagining GIS horror stories as I struggled to remember 'rimshot' as well. :-)
