Description

The route dates from the dawn of the railway age and was soon busy with coal traffic in particular. For this purpose, it became an early candidate for electrification, using a system which was to become unusual – it did not extend beyond the two cities. Most of the route vanished, but the fascinating evidence of its life in scenic joys is very evident herein.
