175 years of the Southampton to Dorchester Railway, June 2022. Find out more on the events page!

A regular rail passenger train service from Swanage to Wareham has been an aspiration of many people for many years. The original line connecting the towns was closed in 1972, and the Purbeck Community Rail Partnership comprising local councils, businesses and rail organisations have been working together since 1997 to make this dream a reality.
