The Weymouth Harbour Branch

This is the line along the quay that leads to the ferry terminal at Weymouth. It saw regular passenger services until 1987, and this film shows a special working from 1994.

A BBC News report from 2009 says there has been talk of using the line, which is still largely intact, to bring spectators to the yachting events at next year's Olympics. But the local council, which now owns the line, does not sound convinced.

Note too the use of the abomination "train line" in that report's headline.
