Far Tottering and Oyster Creek Branch Railway

The Far Tottering and Oyster Creek Branch Railway was a pleasure railway in Battersea Park. It was originally constructed in relation to Festival of Britain events on the South Bank and was designed by Frederick Roland Emett.

The design of the railway's locomotives, rolling stock and stations derived from cartoons in Punch which parodied a pre-Beeching decrepit rural branch line as well the popular myth surrounding such lines. The most famous of the locomotives was Nellie, a copper and mahogany kinetic sculpture.
