The Arbroath and Forfar Railway Co. Free Ticket
The Arbroath and Forfar Railway connected Forfar with the port town of Arbroath.
It opened in 1838-1839 and it was successful in making an operating profit, but it was always desperately short of capital. It used the track gauge of 5 ft 6 in.
When the Aberdeen Railway was authorised in 1845, it leased the Arbroath and Forfar line to form part of its main line connecting Forfar and Aberdeen; it opened in 1848.
