Waterloo - Exeter line Tisbury Station buildings
Waterloo - Exeter line Tisbury Station buildings
Tisbury is now the first station down the line from Salisbury that is still open, but only for passenger traffic. Freight facilities were withdrawn on 18Apr1966. Only the former Up platform is in use, as the track here is still single-line. The unwanted Down platform and adjacent land were sold off to form part of an industrial site, with the result that when a new passing-loop was opened in 1986 it had to be built to the east of station because of the lack of room. The original station building pictured remains in use on the former up platform. The signal-box was closed in 1967, but the building still stands at the Yeovil end of the platform and is used by the railway engineering staff.
