Glossary Results for Word "Branch Line"

Branch Line After the Lancaster and Carlisle line was leased to the LNWR in 1859, the route from Euston to Carlisle became the “main line” and lines off it, however important (e.g. the Manchester and Birmingham line from Crewe to Manchester) were branches. More generally, at any junction the most important through line is the main line and any line off it a branch.
