A ‘We’re Good To Go’ certificate has been awarded to the Swanage Railway to show the railway has complied with all precautions to keep the public safe.

We are pleased that the Government’s plans, and guidance, to bring the country out of the Covid-19 restrictions enable us to plan for the resumption of our train services on Monday, 12 April, 2021.

The safety of our passengers and staff is our prime concern as we look forward to resuming our train services and open our on-line booking service at swanagerailway.co.uk on Thursday, 1 April, 2021.

Gavin Johns — Swanage Railway chairman

No trains have run during the last lockdown, but maintenance work has been completed on track, signalling and the fleet of steam locomotives.
