Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The railway branch line from Newton Abbot to Kingswear in Devon, England, is unusual as a large majority of the stations are still open for traffic. Of the eleven stations, seven are still open so there are only four disused railway stations on this line, a much lower proportion than most similar lines that do not serve big cities. The South Devon Railway opened a branch line to Torquay on 18 December 1848. This line was extended to Paignton by the Dartmouth and Torbay Railway on 2 August 1859, finally reaching Kingswear on 16 August 1864. The section from Newton Abbot to Paignton is now part of Network Rail's Riviera Line, while the section from Paignton to Kingswear is now the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway.show more
