Eden Rivulet track

Had an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable short walk along Eden Rivulet last week, having been told about it by a local. The track is along a disused rail line obviously used for logging.

One of our group was particularly interested as he is a retired railway engineer, and sharing the photos has provoked interest from others with an interest in railway history.
Does anyone have any info on the history of the line?
Unfortunately I managed to leave my camera in the car so my only photos were by phone. :oops:
Definitely worth a return visit.

Sorry about that - the bonus is gone now - hope it was only a brief scare :D
Not sure how I managed it. I was somewhat distracted by the frustrations of trying to upload a photo with our woeful connection and eventually gave up in disgust, obviously without a final proof-reading.
Now to try and work out how to tame an iPhone photo.

Isn't there an app for that?

Maybe, but until recently I had no trouble downloading to a file on laptop where I could open them in Bridge, Photoshop them and do anything I liked. Then I was foolish enough to upgrade phone software and they just go straight to iPhoto. No option to reduce size of file or anything else useful :x
Must admit I haven't spent much time trying to sort it out as I still prefer to use a camera but it's still occasionally very frustrating.

Wow, had a quick search and this looks awesome. Apparently it was an old tram line? :)
