Default Almost Terminal: Marylebone's Brush With Destruction

The former railway from Romsey to Andover used a lot of the former Andover
canal,
The line to Torrington likewise used most of the route of the Rolle canal
to the town,
parts of the North Somerset Canal ended up under became the GWR and
Somerset and Dorset respectively.

Paisley canal branch has a clue in its name and took over a former canal
route.

There will be others.


The railway from London Victoria to the Thames is a converted canal.
Also the London Bridge to Croydon mainline is nearly all converted canal
south of Surrey Canal Road (which is a canal that was converted to a
road, and still had rings set into the pavement for tying up barges 20
years ago, although it all looks new build on Google Streetview now).
