Thanks for posting....  cannot believe the trip through the Weymouth water front.... and how vehicles are nudged over by staff to get the train by.

I can remember seeing trains on it in the 1970s when I was on holiday with my parents. I would have been about ten years old and watching a train make it's way along a road with cars was fascinating.
Love the method of moving obstructing vehicles.
Sad it's being removed but hasn't been used for a couple of decades and no prospect of any future traffic. Todays Health & Safety would probably have a meltdown if anyone tried to make use of it !
