A day trip to Swanage

Ron’s back on safari….

Left home this morning to travel up to Waterloo from where I took a train to Wareham.  At Wareham I took the train from Waterloo via Salisbury, Yeovil and Weymouth to Corfe Castle. At Corfe I took Swanage Railway to Swanage.  From there I hoped to catch the open top bus over the Sandbanks Ferry to Bournemouth.  Unfortunately it turned out that the ferry was closed for emergency maintenance.  The bus ran non stop to Poole via Corfe and Wareham.  Stayed on the bus to Bournemouth to meet up with family members camping in the New Forest.  Am now on train back to Waterloo.

Waterloo – 08:30am


Slightly later – a Waterloo bound train at Wareham

    Very pleased that I went direct on the 4TC set. The ferry has been out of action for some time now.
