Moreton (Dorset) Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Moreton (Dorset) railway station serves the villages of Moreton and Crossways in Dorset, England. It is operated by South West Trains and is served by their trains between London Waterloo and Weymouth. Moreton Station is immediately adjacent to an automatic half barrier level crossing. Like most similar situations, this used to be a manual crossing controlled by a local signal box. This was abolished in the 1960s when signals in the locality were automated. The line between Moreton and Dorchester South was singled in the 1980s, which on many occasions causes considerable delays. It is then double track from Moreton eastwards.
