Early start with Topcat as we was planing to hit up something a bit new, this didn't happen so we headed to the back up plan, as you do.

Browsing at some of the older reports, it looks like we missed the boat a bit as some of the trains have gone, but still a good mooch with a few bits left to see.

The Swanage Railway is a current heritage railway and was a branch line from near Wareham, Dorset to Swanage; it opened in 1885, and the independent company that built it was amalgamated with the larger London and South Western Railway in 1886.The passenger service was withdrawn in 1972, leaving a residual freight service over part of the line handling mineral traffic.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.
