The abandoned southwest railway line where people claim to have seen a ‘ghost train’

Plymouth is home to many old and abandoned train lines and railway related artefacts.

Some have been deleted and are now used as pleasant Cycle paths, some are abandoned and overgrown. The one that runs through the heart of the city is widely considered “abandoned” – but in fact, it still functions to this day.

The train was once one of the main modes of transport and the lines crisscrossed Plymouth all over the world.

Railways and streetcars were in place throughout the city allowing people to travel from A to B but also allow goods to come and go from warehouses and fishing industries through the port.

Such a line still exists, in plain sight, skirting Tothill Park and separating Lipson from Prince Rock with hundreds of meters of metal, Plymouth Live reports.

The line once departed from Plymouth Friary Station, which is now demolished and better known as the White Friars Court and Friary Retail Park housing estate – you can still see the old pillars at the entrance today.

Despite the line leading nowhere and the track ending on the east side of the Tothill Road Bridge, in recent weeks shocked residents have been taken aback when they saw a moving locomotive.

Scroll through the images below to learn more about Plymouth’s rail history and why locals claimed to have seen a ‘ghost train’ on one of the town’s ‘abandoned’ tracks.
