Waterloo to Exeter Railway Tisbury station
Waterloo to Exeter Railway Tisbury station
Tisbury station, freight traffic was stopped from 18 April 1966 and on 5 February 1967 the signal box was closed, despite having only been opened to replace the original on 12 October 1958. The line was reduced to just a single track on 1 April 1967 and the southern platform sold off.
The 19 mile single-track section from Wilton to Gillingham proved to be too long and so a loop was reinstated mid-way at Tisbury on 24 March 1986. As the second platform had been sold off, the new loop was installed to the east of the station. This means that trains have to wait outside the station when passing.The loop is controlled from Salisbury and is signalled so that trains can run in either direction on each line.
