About Parkstone Station

Parkstone railway station was opened on 15th June 1874 and was initially served by the London and South Western Railway. The Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway line from Bath Green Park to Bournemouth West ran through the station until the Beeching Axe in 1966. The station sign used to read ‘Parkstone (for Sandbanks)’.

Until 1967 a branch goods line ran from here to George Jennings' South Western Pottery. The line extended from the Pottery to Salterns Pier, on the northern shores of Poole Harbour, until 1922.

Photographed on 4th May, 1960, the "George Jennings" saddle tank operated the line between the station and the pottery.

The line between Bournemouth and Weymouth was electrified in 1988 using the standard British Rail Southern Region system of a third rail with 750 Volts direct current.
