Weymouth is a seaside town and tourist resort in Dorset, England, halfway along the Jurassic Coast, to the north east of Portland in Weymouth Bay at the mouth of the river Wey. It has long been a draw for holidaymakers with its long sandy beach, bustling town and the picturesque and historic Georgian Weymouth Old Harbour, which has a long seafaring history. The harbour used to have a tramway to transport produce to the main railway station in the 19th century and was used until the late 1980s for passenger trains taking people to the Quay station to catch ferries for Europe. The tracks still exist, running along the old harbour, with special trains occasionally using it.
