Kendal Tommy

A History of the Arnside-Kendal Branch

Dave Richardson


The origins and history of the line between Arnside on the Furness Railway and Hincaster Junction on the LNWR. As well as having all the characteristics of a typical rural branch, the line was regularly used as a shortcut for excursion and special passenger trains as well as by coke trains running between the north east and the iron works of the Furness area.

The book provides extensive coverage of the services on the line, as well as the stations, sidings and signalling. Additionally, there is a dedicated chapter covering the quarry and lime works at Sandside. Profusely illustrated with photographs, maps and scale drawings of some of the structures.
