Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hayling Island Branch was a railway in Hampshire, England. It was sometimes known as the Hayling Billy, a name now given to the footpath along the old track. The line was opened by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway for goods on January 19, 1865, and for passengers on July 16, 1867. It ran from Havant to Hayling Island station. There were two intermediate stations at Langston and North Hayling. Neither were ever "halts," in spite of their small size. The line itself was mainly used during the summer months as people from the South Coast would travel down to the beach on Hayling Island. The coaches would often be overflowing during these months, however would be virtually empty during the winter, which would become a problem.show more
