Ashurst (New Forest) railway station is a railway station serving the village of Ashurst in Hampshire, England. It is located on the South Western Main Line from London Waterloo to Weymouth.
Opened by the Southampton and Dorchester Railway, then absorbed by the London and South Western Railway , it became part of the Southern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed on to the Southern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
When Sectorisation was introduced in the 1980s, the station was served by Network SouthEast until the Privatisation of British Railways.
For much of its history the station was known as Lyndhurst Road, and was the location of a Camping coach.
The station is located some 200 to 300 yards from the village of Ashurst, and is also used by visitors to the New Forest. It is served hourly by the London Waterloo to Poole stopping services operated by South West Trains, along with some additional fast trains to London Waterloo in the peak. The majority of services are formed of Class 444 electric multiple units, with some Class 450 units. Services were previously operated by Class 442 Wessex Electrics which were withdrawn at the start of February 2007.
