Wilts, Somerset and Weymouth Railway

The Wilts, Somerset and Weymouth Railway was a broad gauge railway that linked the Great Western Railway at Chippenham, Wiltshire with Weymouth, Dorset, England. Branches ran to Devizes, Bradford-on-Avon and Salisbury in Wiltshire, and to Radstock in Somerset. The majority of the line survives today as the Wessex Main Line and the Heart of Wessex Line. The only line closures have been the branches to Devizes and Radstock, although a number of smaller stations were closed as part of the Beeching Axe. Radipole Halt was then closed in 1984 when the platforms became unsafe.
