the big challenge
Can anybody think of a single railway in the UK that should not be restored in the future? I've racked my brains and can't think of one. I suppose the only genuine candidate would be a line that solely served an industry that no longer exists, with no population centres en route. If you can think of any please post to the comments section.
(The photo above incidentally is of Fittleworth. Just to get you started - the line closed as long ago as 1955, but served the large towns of Petworth and Midhurst. There was also a line from Midhurst to Petersfield which only served a couple of villages, and a further line (closed in 1935) that connected with Chichester. Would any of these not be worth restoring?)
