Swanage Railway
Swanage Railway currently operates on the 6 miles of track between Swanage and Norden, through the Isle of Purbeck, passing the ruins of Corfe Castle.

Swanage Railway also has a museum, located in the converted Goods Shed at Corfe Castle.

The railway first came to Swanage in 1885 and was operated by the London & South Western Railway Company. In January 1972 British Railways closed the line and lifted all the track. However, this was not the end, as a group of enthusiasts got together to rebuild the line. In the summer of 1975 a licence was granted to the Swanage Railway Society to occupy the disused Swanage station site, since when the volunteers have restored the railway to what it is today.

Daily service from Easter to end of October limited service in other months.
