Starting at Weymouth Quay Ferry Terminal, some shots are taken before travelling the line. Then, with the camera bolted to the top of a car, the line is driven in the early morning (so as to be less cluttered by traffic) as faithfully as possible towards Weymouth station. Sights along the way include the remaining platform at Custom House Quay, Town Bridge and the additional loop that the GWR built in the 1930s to ease the steepness of one of the original curves.
Near Weymouth station, your cameraman roams on foot to obtain a couple of shots of the line travelling through “green lanes” through the town as it makes its way towards what used to be a huge siding area.
Includes constant, well-informed commentary, reference to a vintage map and a slide show of stills.
