Šaursliežu dzelzceļu sāka būvēt 1916. gadā Vācu okupācijas karaspēks, lai pilnvērtīgāk izmantotu kokmateriālu resursus Vācijas impērijas vajadzībām. Dzelzceļš izceļas ar savu šaurumu, jeb L platumu - 600mm, tas tādēļ, lai varētu izmantot savu ritošo sastāvu. Dzelzceļa būvniecības darbus vadīja vācu tehniskais personāls, bet kā darba spēks tika izmantoti krievu kara gūstekņi un vietējieiedzīvotāji piespiedu darbos. Dzelzceļš savienoja ostas pilsētu Ventspili ar piekrastes zvejniekciemiem un lielo dzelzceļa mezglu Stendē, tādējādi veicinot reģiona ekonomisko un kultūras uzplaukumu.


German occupation forces started to build railway in 1916 year to transport wood resources for their needs. It stands out with its width, L - 600mm, it's therefore to be able to use their rolling stock. Construction works were managed by German technicians, but as the working force were used for Russian prisoners of war and forced local citizens. The railway connected the port city Ventspils with the coastal fishing villages and big railway junction in Stende, this railway advanced the regional economic and cultural prosperity.
