The branch line from Wareham to Swanage in Dorset was closed to traffic in 1972. Despite efforts to preserve the line and run it as a preservation line much of the track was quickly removed. As a result the track that now forms the running line has had to be laid from scratch. The line currently runs from Swanage to Corfe Castle although there are plans to extend running to connect to the BR mainline at Wareham in 2015.
