Weymouth Quay beware

The branch to Weymouth Quay station is unusual because its track runs along streets. Perhaps because of this it has been out of use since it was used by a railtour in 1999, and hasn't seen a regular passenger service since 1987. However, the tracks can still be followed from near Weymouth station to the ferry terminal that has now completely taken over the old Weymouth Quay station.

The front of the station, standing on the "platform" with the line on the road to the left:

Looking along the platform towards the end of the line. The station building's fittings are reminiscent of other BR stations of the time, such as Leicester:
