Westward Ho!

Postby rogerfarnworth » Wed Jun 05, 2019 11:58 am

An independent standard-gauge line with no direct connection into the wider network. ....... The first section of the line was completed in 1901, the full line finished in 1908. All of the track and rolling stock were requisitioned during the war and the railway closed in 1917. The materials never saw active service! ........

When I first visited Westward Ho! in the 1970's the carpark still occupied the area that had clearly been Westward Ho! station and goods yard.
