Connecting coach service from Maidstone

Local coach services, which must have lost much of their trade to and from London, tried to fill the gap by offering coaches to and from railway stations along the line.  This image advertises a coach service which connected Maidstone with the South Eastern Railway at Paddock Wood, predating the line which opened in 1844 to link Maidstone with the mainline at Paddock Wood.
