to go home
The reason for the existence of the branch line was to transport workers from Newport Pagnell, Great Linford and New Bradwell to the Carriage and Wagon Works at Wolverton.

Originally, the men and boys travelled free to work but later charges were introduced.

From Newport Pagnell a weekly ticket was

Men 1/6 (one shilling and sixpence) - about 7.5p
Boys 1/- (one shilling) - about 5p

According to one ex-employee the train frequently broke down making them late for work. This was evidently accepted as 'one of those things' because if this had happened they were not docked any wages for being late.
