Hi, really like the maps and thanks for posting, very interesting, especially the weights of rails, would like to see a gradient profile of this line as some of the gradients were quite steep. I wondered if your maps date from around 1893? Was this when the trestle bridge was replaced? I have been trying to research the history of this railway over the last few years and have some 1898 OS maps (only photocopies unfortunately) having walked and photographed this area after the railway had closed in 1961 (my pictures date from 1962 onwards). These pictures were taken by my late father at Chattenden Depot in 1963 I believe, and show the empty sheds and formation, photographs of this railway seem to be quite rare, possibly due to its very nature as a military railway, the standard gauge connection between Lodge Hill and Kingsnorth pier was authorised in 1901 but only part of the line was built from the munitions depot at Lodge Hill to the exchange sidings at Sharnal Street with the S.E.C.R Port Victoria branch this became known as the Chattenden Naval Tramway, believe the South Eastern offered to sell the Port Victoria branch to the Admiralty but Lodge hill was already connected to the River Medway by the Chattenden and Upnor Railway....hope you like the pictures..
