During the First World War Fovant, located between Wilton and Shaftesbury, became a major army encampment.  The camp at Fovant was nearly completed when it was decided to connect with the main LSWR system and the line opened from Dinton station to the camp in October 1915.  The new train service was soon put to great use and apart from a regular service between Dinton and Fovant for passengers and supplies, the line received many special troop trains including ambulance trains bringing soldiers back from the war to be treated at Fovant military hospital.

Contents include a history of the line, description of the route, motive power and rolling stock, tickets and timetables, the closure of the line and the present scene.  The book includes sketches and photographs.
