of 14 Queen Victoria Street, London

1867 The company was incorporated.

Easton and Church Hope Railway is 3.5 miles.

This line was originally proposed solely as a short line on the top of the Island linking quarries to the coastal pier. Totally impractical, it was ultimately built circling the Island and descending the East cliffs joining the Admiralty Railway, and providing a through route to England and the main line.

1901 The line opened for goods traffic.

1902 The line opened for passenger traffic.

1908 The line is worked by the Great Western Railway and London and South Western Railway companies. [1]

After 1923 it was jointly owned by the Southern Railway (SR) and the Great Western Railway (GWR).
