First published in 1973, this fourth edition has been updated by Colin Stone, who made additions to Chapters Two, Four, Five and Six. The late Roger Kidner first visited Swanage during the inter-war years, discovering that there was much of railway interest in the Island of Purbeck, not just the Southern Railway’s Swanage Branch but also the clay tramways and the target range railways. Mr Kidner’s visits were interrupted by the war years but then continued into the 1970s when the new Swanage Railway began its life. The six chapters deal with the Swanage Branch, Southern Railway and British Rail, locomotives and rolling stock, the clay tramways, other tramways and the new Swanage Railway. Two appendices cover Southern Steam Trust Stock in 1999 and ‘Recent’ Middlebere Track Studies. The illustrations comprise of photographs, maps and track layout diagrams.
