Wightlink Ferry - 'Wight Sun'.0 kez bakıldıThe continued existance of the branch line from Brockenhurst to Lymington Pier, is due to the ferry service that links the mainland to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Although the Summer Saturday through trains from Waterloo are no-more, the branch still has a frequent service, connecting with the ferries on most trips. The close proximity of the station to the ferry terminal, and through ticketing for foot passengers, make this route an easy travel option. 'Wight Sun', Lymington River, 1st July 2011.
