Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Felixstowe Branch Line is a railway line from Ipswich to Felixstowe in Suffolk. The line follows the East Suffolk Line from Ipswich to Westerfield, and then diverges to the south. Passenger services are operated by National Express East Anglia. The line is extensively used by freight trains to the Port of Felixstowe, operated by DB Schenker, Freightliner and FirstGBRf. Colonel George Tomline, a Suffolk landowner, promoted the Felixstowe Railway and Pier Company in a parliamentary bill of July 1875. With impressive speed the line was built and the first train ran on 1 May 1877. A further act of parliament in July 1879 enabled the building of a dock, approach channels and additional railway lines to the dock area.show more
