The Lymington Line runs from Brockenhurst to Lymington Pier, both in the New Forest. It diverges from the main line at Lymington Junction. At Lymington Pier, trains connect with Wightlink ferry services to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
The branch line celebrated the 150th anniversary of its opening in July 2008. Between 2005 and 2010 it was promoted as a heritage route, making use of older rolling stock that was retired from elsewhere on the UK rail network.
