Wareham to Swanage Main Line Link DVD
Famous visiting locomotives including Flying Scotsman.
Reconnecting the branch.
First through trains.
Wareham trial service.
Workings between Furzebrook and Worgret.
With the recent visit to the Swanage Railway of Flying Scotsman, it allows us to trace the success of main line operations since the line was reconnected to the main network in 2002.
We witness the final piece of track being placed at Motala and the ceremonial arrival of a Virgin Voyager set.
With the trackbed from Motala through Furzbrook and up the Worgret Junction being upgraded, we can see the new investment made for new signalling and operations to make access to Wareham a much simpler procedure.
We follow the many main line steam and diesel charters to arrive and depart from the railway and cover the test series of loco-hauled trains in 2017 between Swanage and Wareham.
With the line towards Worgret available, we cover gala periods where trains can now progress over the new Norden Gates system, offering a much longer operating line.
We see Flying Scotsman arrive and operate the highly successful series of trains over five days and its static appearance at Corfe Castle Station.
Altogether, the ultimate main line story of the Swanage Railway.
Approx. 60 minutes.
