The Ashover Light Railway
The Ashover Light Railway
This is a thread prompted by reading old copies of "The Railway Magazine" from 1950. The September 1950 magazine carried a short article about the Ashover Light Railway which had finally closed over the majority of its length to freight traffic in March 1950.

The post below is the first of at least two.

I hope you enjoy it. Much of the information comes from three sources ... The Railway Magazine, Wikipedia, and the website of the Ashover Light Railway Society. The Society's website is well worth a visit.

RE: The Ashover Light Railway
Never heard of any of the railway lines you posted. Do you have anything to discuss about them or have you just signed up to this forum to promote a blog you've just created?

I don't see an issue with that. I think Roger's blog is interesting and I'm sure others do as well

RE: The Ashover Light Railway
I'd be delighted to talk about this and other lines. I hope that these posts have been of interest.

This Light Railway was a significant development in its time as it was promulgated by George Stevenson as part of industrial interests that he developed though his work constructing the mainline tunnel close by.

I have tried to include as much interesting information as I can in the hope that people will want to discuss the line, and others like it, that are now long-gone but which were an important part of our industrial and railway heritage.

I love doing the research which has produced these posts and I trust that others will enjoy what I have discovered.

Best wishes

Roger
