History[ edit ] Opened in by the Great Western Railwaythe harbour tramway runs from a junction north of the main station, through the streets adjacent to the Backwater and the harbour, to the quay. Passenger trains began intransporting travellers to Channel Island ferries. As freight traffic grew, several sidings and loops were added to the main line to serve harbourside waco nc adult personals. The Town Bridge was rebuilt inand the tramway initially routed through the northern arch.
Between and the tight curve between the Backwater and harbour was supplanted by a new curve on a newly-infilled section of the quayside and the tramway was relocated to the outer arch of shemale escorts in denver bridge, where it remains today. The track layout at the Quay station was gradually increased from a single track, to a double-track layout up toand finally a three-track arrangement which persisted till the end of regular traffic, albeit in a truncated layout from Regular goods traffic ceased inalthough fuel oil was transported to a facility at the pier until Regular passenger services ceased in when the Escorst Western Main Line into Weymouth was provided with third rail electrificationwhich was incompatible with street running.
There were some experiments in with a flywheel -powered vehicle see Parry People Moversbut this did not result in permanent traffic on the tramway. The last use of the branch was on weymouht May for a special Pathfinder Tours charter.
During operation of services by Class 33 locomotives, two warning units were built and housed in a cabinet at the track side entrance to the tramway at the throat of Weymouth yard. This equipment comprised a yellow box which fitted on a lamp bracket on the cab front, and had an amber rotating escorgs and bell which served to warn thoroughfare users.

Trains for the quay would halt at the station throat, the warning equipment attached and then tested by the train guard. In addition, trains on the tramway were "walked" wsymouth railway staff with flags, clearing the route of people and badly parked cars all the way between the points at which the tramway reverted to conventional track at the quay station and road crossing into Weymouth yard.
On arrival at the quay terminus the guard would move the warning equipment to the other end of the train in readiness for visoting return journey. On occasions trains were escorted by the British Transport Police.
In January it was reported that Weymouth and Portland Borough Council wished to remove the tramway, and that Network Rail had confirmed it had no wish for its retention. In August a report appeared in the Dorset Echo saying that weymmouth petition online had been set up to reopen the line.
