Swanage Railway

The Swanage Railway is a heritage railway and was a branch line from near Wareham, Dorset to Swanage; it opened in 1885, the independent company that built it being amalgamated with the larger London and South Western Railway in 1886. The passenger service was withdrawn in 1972, leaving a residual freight service over part of the line handling mineral traffic. After the passenger closure, a heritage railway group revived part of the line; it too used the name Swanage Railway and now operates a 6-mile (9.7 km) line, which follows the route of the former line from Norden, via Corfe Castle, Harman's Cross and Herston Halt to Swanage.. See the Official Swanage Railway Website for the latest details.  (ref: Wikipedia)
