The Longmoor Military Railway (initially known as the Woolmer Instructional Railway) was built near Liss in Hampshire, to train soldiers in the construction and operation of railways. The line was built as a narrow gauge line by the Royal Engineers, around 1903, being relaid to standard gauge between 1905 & 1907. The railway was used until 1969 when, after an unsuccessful preservation attempt, the line was closed, and dismantled. Over the years many different types of locomotives and stock have been used on the line, including ex BR Mk1 Suburban coaches. (Invicta Exclusive 34-625Y)
