Weymouth Quay Station
Weymouth Quay is a disused railway station at the terminus of the Weymouth Harbour Tramway. Until September 1987 it was the regular terminus and starting point for boat trains, linking to the ferry services with trains running along the streets of the town.
The track and station are no longer used at all, although they are still part of the rail network. The station buildings are now offices for Condor Ferries which operates a ferry service to the Channel Islands.
