The Branch Line Britain Website gives information about Britain's railway branch lines, plus many other minor railway lines in Britain. Each railway line featured gives details of the line and its history, its stations, nearby places of interest and reviews of journeys on the line. Quite often it is the main routes of Britain's railway lines that get all the publicity. This website aims to give the minor lines their moment of glory! This site is not just for railway enthusiasts or those who work on the railways though, but also for anyone interested in railways as well as parents/grandparents looking for a different day out by train.
The lines have been grouped into the old British Rail regions for ease of navigation. Over eighty different lines are included.
Help wanted! We are always looking for contributions of photos, reviews and written memories of the lines featured on this website. If you would like to do contribute in this way please read our submission guidelines.
