SWANAGE RAILWAY

SWANAGE RAILWAY

Heritage railway on the Isle of Purbeck. The Wareham-Swanage line was closed in 1972. Thanks to local support and the efforts of volunteers, the Swanage Railway is probably the best thing in town and ran its first service in 1979. The frequent service runs about 6 miles between Swanage and Norden, via Corfe Castle.  Journey time between Swanage and Corfe is about 20 minutes.
