The Ross - Monmouth railway opened in August 1873 and lost its passenger service in January 1959 (along with the Wye Valley line from Monmouth Troy to Chepstow) some time before Dr Beeching published his report into the railways. Parts of the line were retained for freight use: the section from Ross to Lydbrook was retained until November 1965 to serve the SO5817 : Former Edison Swan cable works, Lybrook, and the section from Lydbrook to Monmouth was mothballed until 1966 in case circumstances justified the line's reopening (which of course they didn't: the era of the tourist - driven heritage steam railway was some way off). Nowadays, the former railway fencing borders a footpath and is looking increasingly dilapidated as the years go by.
