Hmmm, yes. From what little I've scraped up so far online, it was built by
the Admiralty in Victorian times and also used by the Medway Port Authority
in the early 1990's for spreading dredged mud around the island. Two
Hibberd&Co Planet-class narrow-gauge locomotives were used for that purpose
from 1962 until the early 1980's and sold in 1990 to the Yaxham Light
Railway. By looking at some online pics it seems they now use regular dump
The line runs from a dock at the SE corner to the fort at the SW corner, I'm
puzzled as to why it run along the north of the island, unless it was
extended to spread the muck evenly...
Any advances on that, folks?
