Always known locally as "The Potts", this unique railway had a very chequered history, having been closed no less than three times and bankrupt for much of its life. Its eccentric ways while under the control of Colonel Stephens and its transformation by the Army are fully illustrated. Timetables and numerous maps add to the understanding of a fascinating railway story.
