The East Grinstead, Groombridge and Tunbridge Wells Company was granted approval in 1862 to construct a railway in an eastwards direction from East Grinstead to Tunbridge Wells. Closure for the Groombridge to Tunbridge Wells West line came on 6 July 1985. A preservation society was formed with the aims of operating the route as a preserved railway. After a long hard struggle they were rewarded when they acquired the line in the early 1990s.
