Synopsis

The Rye and Camber Tramway was a unique 3ft gauge steam railway line which opened in 1895. The line was primarily used by golfers for the Rye Golf Club, the fishing community at Rye harbour and day-trippers.

Public use of the line ended in 1939 with the tramway being requisitioned by the Admiralty for carrying men and equipment during the war. The line closed in 1947 owing to stock and track being in a poor state.

With photographs and illustrations the book includes the history of the line, the motive power and rolling stock, tickets and timetables, closure and the present scene.
