Axminster & Lyme Regis Light Railway 1899 - 1907


An LRO was obtained in 1899 and the line opened four years later on 24 August 1903. Though well-used, traffic fell short of hopes and there were always financial problems. The L&SWR was asked to take over, which it did with effect from 1 January 1907 by an Act of 20 July 1906. The line closed on 29 November 1965.
