To coincide with the 175th Anniversary of the completion of the line from Oxenholme to Windermere, author Dick Smith has written a second and much enlarged edition of his original book telling the history of the Kendal and Windermere Railway.

Published by the Cumbrian Railways Association, this second edition includes a new introductory chapter: ‘The world the Railway changed’, and two other new chapters.

One deals with the succession of proposals to extend the railway beyond its present terminus at Windermere, the other looks at the railway connections with Croppers paper mills in the Burneside area.

The book is richly illustrated using photos from the CRA and other archives. These photographs, several not published before, show many of the different types of traction and the variety of liveries seen over the years.

The book also includes specially drawn detailed signalling diagrams of the Windermere branch in the years before it was reduced to a single track.
