Excerpt: The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LB&SCR) (known also as "the Brighton line" or "the Brighton Railway") was a railway company in the United Kingdom from 1846 to 1922. Its territory formed a rough triangle, with London at its apex, practically the whole coastline of Sussex as its base, and a large part of Surrey. It was bounded on its western side by the lines of the London and South Western Railway (L&SWR), which provided an alternative route to Portsmouth in Hampshire. On its eastern side the railway was bounded by the South Eastern Railway (SER) - later one component of the South Eastern and Chatham Railway (SE&CR) - which provided an alternative route to Bexhill, St Leonards-on-Sea, and Hastings.

The company was formed by a merger of five pre-existing companies in 1846, and was in turn merged with the L&SWR, the SE&CR and several minor railway companies in southern England, as a result of the Railways Act 1921 grouping, to form the Southern Railway (Great Britain) as from 1 January 1923.
