A branch with a chequered history, it initially carried boat trains and then became an unimportant backwater serving a small local community. Of importance in two world wars, it failed to become the holiday line that was planned but developed instead into a major industrial route. Subsequent decline has recently been reversed with unexpected new traffic. This unusual railway story is illustrated with 120 photographs and numerous maps.
