The changing roll of the line over the years has been dramatic. It has carried everything from coal and sheep to holiday makers and the paraphernalia of two World Wars. The scenery is equally varied, being particularly unusual on the unique New Romney branch. All these features are recorded with photographs, maps and memorabilia.
