Join us for a drivers-eye view as we journey through the beautiful Purbeck countryside in real-time, and experience the best seat in the house on the journey from Swanage to Wareham and back.

The last British Rail train ran to Corfe Castle and Swanage in January 1972.

Shortly after, the line was closed and the tracks were ripped up, leaving only a three-mile stub from the main line to Furzebrook for clay and later Wytch Farm for oil.

Few people thought that passenger trains from Swanage and Corfe Castle would ever return to Wareham, but 45 years later the towns have been reconnected.

The first public train from Swanage to Wareham ran again on Tuesday 13th June 2017, departing at 10:23am. The service was top and tailed by Class 33 "Crompton" No. 33012 / D6515 "Lt Jenny Lewis RN" which hauled the service from Swanage to Wareham, and Class 37 No. 37518. which hauled the train back to Swanage.

Tickets are now available for purchase online from our website. Follow/Like us at the links below to find out more information. We look forward to seeing you on the railway soon.
