Corfe Castle Station
Corfe Castle railway station is a railway station located in the village of Corfe Castle, in Dorset. Originally an intermediate station on the London and South Western Railway (L&SWR) branch line from Wareham to Swanage, the line and station were closed by British Rail in 1972. It has since reopened as a station on the Swanage Railway, a heritage railway that currently runs from Norden station just north of Corfe Castle to Swanage station. This is now a built railway line connecting Wareham and Norden but only certain services continue to Wareham.
