Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Foss Islands Branch Line was a former railway branch line in the city of York. The line, about 1.75 miles (2.82 km) long, opened in 1880, connecting the York to Scarborough Line of the North Eastern Railway to a large freight depot in the Foss Islands area of the city. A minor passenger service was provided from 1927 onwards to a small station called Rowntree Halt south of the factory and close to the junction of the branch with the Scarborough line. This allowed Rowntree workers from areas south of York such as Selby and Doncaster to commute directly to the factory, and was also used for works visits and workers' excursions. The halt closed on 8 July 1988.
