Virgin breakthrough

The first train to reach Swanage, Dorset from the mainline network for thirty years arrived on 7th September 2002.
Christened The ‘Dorset Voyager’ at a special ceremony the train was supplied by Virgin Trains. Half a mile of track had to be specially restored to connect the Swanage Railway with the national network.
