Sway railway station serves the village of Sway in Hampshire, England. It is located on the South Western Main Line from London Waterloo to Weymouth . It is 95 miles 45 chains (153.8 km) down the line from Waterloo.
For over 50 years Sway station had an excellent tradition for its floral displays; Joe Young station master from 1956 until his retirement in 1988 kept the station immaculate and won many Best Kept Station Awards. Since then station master Ian Faletto won awards for his floral displays and outstanding customer service. Now Sway was looking for volunteers to help improve the look of the station again. Friends of Sway Station or FOSS was formed in September 2011 with a view to improving the look of the station and encouraging greater usage of it. Many stations throughout the country have similar organisations and South West Trains actively encouraged the setting up of FOSS and establishing a good working relationship and support
In addition a new information board was erected alongside the exit to the car park and another installed in the new bus shelter on Station Road. 10,000 "Exploring Sway" visitor information leaflets were printed and are available at the Local Tourist Information Point, Sway Station and other Sway tourist businesses.
