Little more than three miles long and was built when there were dreams of turning Lee-on-the-Solent into a resort to rival Brighton and Bournemouth.

The branch line, with quaint halts at Elmore, Browndown and Fort Gomer, only carried passengers for 36 years.

This detailed and fascinating booklet by Peter A Harding charts the rise and fall of the Lee-on-the-Solent Railway from its opening in May 1894 to its closure to passengers in 1930 and to goods five years later.

Like the main line from Fareham to Gosport and the other branch from Gosport to Stokes Bay, maybe you are left wondering what might have been if they had all survived. The railway, which forked off the main line from Fareham to Gosport at Fort Brockhurst, was an important part of the development of Lee.

But as Peterís booklet of the line its engines and rolling stock, points out, it never made money and Southern Railway closed it.
