Swanage Railway – ‘Roads to Rail’

23rd June, 2023 - 25th June, 2023

Step back in time for a weekend of steam-powered demonstrations and vintage fairground fun. Working traction engines, road rollers, showman’s engines, Land Rovers, lorries, classic cars, stationary engines and much more – bringing the Isle of Purbeck to life with recreations of a bygone age.

Located near Corfe Castle, next to Norden train station, you can experience road steam and rail steam together for our popular annual event in the Isle of Purbeck with rides and stalls suitable for all ages.

Enjoy delicious local food in the showground before visiting the beer tent to sample some popular ales and ciders.

Steam-hauled passenger trains will be operating throughout the weekend and late into the evening. In addition we will be running our mainline connection allowing you to travel directly from Wareham and beyond.

Bring the whole family for a super steam-filled day out!
