Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leominster and Kington Railway was one of four which served the Welsh Marches border town of Kington, Herefordshire. Opened in August 1857, its peak was during World War 2, when it served two US Army hospitals. Decling post war due to competition from buses, it closed to passengers in 1955, and freight from 1964. Today, a 1 mile section is preserved at Titley Junction railway station. Proposed in 1853, the company was formed by William Bateman-Hanbury, 2nd Baron Bateman of Shobdon Court. It received Royal Assent as a broad gauge line in July 1854, subject to provision for a junction with the standard gauge Kington and Eardisley Railway be provided.show more
