Memories of the Swanage Branch (DVD) £19.95

Ian Heys

Format:
PAL
Duration:
65 minutes

First Pasture Price:  £19.95         

Status: In Stock

The Swanage branch meandered gently from the main line at Worgret Junction to the terminus at the pleasant seaside resort some 10 miles distant, with views along the way of meadows, riverside and heath.  We start with a brief history of the branch and the varied motive power that used the line before we turn to the familiar camera of Stan Peerless for a trip down the branch in 1965.  At both Worgret Junction and Furzebrook we catch Standard Tanks on China Clay trains before we reach the station at Corfe Castle.  Numerous scenes show this most photogenic of locations before the cine film concludes with scenes taken at Swanage.

The second part of the programme examines what remains of the branch today and we start with the preserved railway.  We have both the M7 30053 and Bulleid Pacific 34072, 257 Squadron working the service trains.  We carry on travelling north to take a look at the Network Rail section from Furzebrook through to Wareham and the BP gas trains that operated daily to Avonmouth Docks.  As well as looking at Wareham station we take a look inside the signal box which has changed little.

A wealth of archive photographs provide some fascinating then and now views coupled with the memories of former railway staff.  The programme includes full commentary.
