The railway is known for being the first railway to rely on steam power only; from its opening in 1830 there was no horse drawn traffic at all on the line. Patricroft itself was also home to the Bridgewater Foundry, which produced steam locomotives and machine parts before turning its effort to munitions and tanks during the First and Second World Wars.
