Branch Line to Wantage

The Wantage Tramway

by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith

The Wantage Tramway was in reality only a railway from the waist down. It evolved that way, although the directors planned freight carriage from the outset, but tramway status brought many economies. The resulting curious hybrid was photographed by relatively few people, but some fresh pictures have been discovered to add to the classic views of this unique operation, which made a consistent profit even in its final year.
