Swanage Pier

I must remember not to use Python stuff in titles, the post below gained a stupid amount of hits way beyond its interest level.
Anyway back to my return to more prototype photos. This is the Swanage Pier Tramway taken last summer. There's not much info on this apart from the usual dates and brief usage. It's 2'6" gauge and was used to transport Purbeck stone onto the purpose built pier. It had no mainline connection and was, it would seem, horse worked. The surprising thing is that there is still quite a bit of it existing. The road to the left led into a fish store -now tourist information.
