The Vale of Rheidol Railway
East Kent Light Railway, Country Railway Routes
Regular price £18.95
One of the most curious railways in Britain, the East Kent was not planned as a passenger line but was intended mainly as a carrier of coal to the coast for shipping. It passed through a tunnel associated with a skull (Golgotha), had stations commemorating murder (Poison Cross) and unproductive collieries (several). Its mysterious rolling stock and bizarre termini have made it a transport legend, which can be explored through the photographs, maps and amazingly varied tickets contained in this album.
