Nothing so erudite as the article linked by Dirk but there were a couple of railway lines - one going to Shrewsbury and one going to Uttoxeter from my hometown which were axed back in the day.  There was also a track that used to lead off the main line (between Stafford and Wolverhampton) at one time and I was told that used to go to the nearest coalfield.  Of course the coalfield at Huntington was one of those closed by Baroness T so I guess that could be construed as a line to nowhere now.
