East Cornwall Mineral Railway

The East Cornwall Mineral Railway was a 42 narrow gauge industrial railway opened in 1872 to serve the iron ore and stone quarries around Callington in Cornwall. The line was 7½ miles long running from Kelly Bray to Calstock, where an rope-worked incline ran down to the quay on the River Tamar. There were several branches serving copper, tin and arsenic mines and quarries. An Act of Parliament in 1883 authorised the Plymouth, Devonport and South Western Junction Railway to take over the line.
