    The full story behind the return of passenger trains to the Swanage branch in April and May, the first diesel since 1972 and the first steamer since 1967. Includes aerial footage of Tangmere as it traverses the branch. Extensive coverage of the very first trains on 1st and 2nd April hauled by two Class 66s from DB-Schenker. Many lineside locations and interviews with the key people on the day and footage of the trains as they departed from London and on-board the journey to Dorset. See the trains negotiate the junction at Worgret on these truly historic days. Altogether, a fitting tribute to the final connection with the main line at Wareham. A co-production with Andrew P.M. Wright, long-time Swanage Railway volunteer and official photographer, with ten camera teams covering the events. Approx. 120 minutes

    This is the story of Dorset's only preserved railway which opened in the 1880s and closed in the British Railway run-down period of the early 1970s. From the bleak period in 1972 came the Swanage Railway Trust who began the long and sometimes weary path to re-building the railway all the way back to Corfe Castle in 1995 and beyond to connect with the main line again in 2002. Through archive films and interviews, we hear of the re-building of the line in the late 1970s through to the 1990s, which required every piece of rail to be laid along the empty trackbed. This epic programme of two hours duration tells the whole story spanning three centuries from the 1880s through to the 21st century. Cover photographs courtesy of Andrew P M Wright Running time: 120 minutes.
