The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LB&SC Railway) (commonly known as "The Brighton line"), was a railway company in the United Kingdom from 1846 to 1923. 
Its territory formed a rough triangle, with London at its apex and practically the whole coastline of Sussex as its base. It was bounded on its western side by the lines of the London and South Western Railway; on its eastern by the South Eastern Railway (later the South Eastern and Chatham Railway). It supplied the most direct routes to the South Coast seaside resorts of Brighton, Eastbourne and Worthing among many others. At the London end was a complicated suburban and outer-suburban network of lines.
The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LB&SCR) was formed by Act of Parliament on 27 July 1846, through the amalgamation of a number of pre-existing railway companies.
