Acts of Parliament

The starting point for any railway line is its Act of Parliament. Below is what we believe to be a complete list of all the relevant Acts. The list has been complied and partially annotated by Dr Mike Fitton. Further annotation will be done over time and any corrections and or contributions are welcome.
