Synopsis

Change at Robertsbridge by David Penn. Tenterden and the villages along the Rother Valley had been pleading for a railway for decades, but who would foot the bill? The directors of the newly formed Rother Valley (Light) Railway Company thought they had found a solution. They engaged a ‘company promoter’ to find the money and build the line. It was a risky decision and the new company was soon in financial difficulties.

This book tells the story of the first few years of this railway (1897 – 1904) – its directors, professionals and investors.
