Welcome to Dorset's premier standard gauge preserved steam railway.
The award-winning Swanage Railway currently operates on the six miles of track between Swanage and Norden, through the beautiful Isle of Purbeck, passing the magnificent ruins of Corfe Castle.
Trains operate on the Swanage Railway every weekend and Bank Holiday from mid-February to the end of the year, and every day of the week from April to October. From late March to early November you can also enjoy the pleasure of dining whilst you travel on the Wessex Belle Dining Train.
Imagine gliding through the beautiful Purbeck countryside on a summer's evening, the sun slowly dipping below a stunning silhouette of Corfe Castle. Wisps of smoke from the engine saunter lazily by while you relax in the comfortable and elegant surroundings, and take a sip of wine while savouring the smells of the delicious food which has just arrived in front of you. You don't have to imagine, you just need to book a seat on one of our superb dining trains to experience an evening like no other. Whether it's an intimate meal for two, a party or corporate function, Swanage Railway can offer you a wide choice of on train dining options.
