Special Train from Okehampton to Weymouth

14 September 2019

The Train

OkeRail Forum in partnership with Great Western Railway and Dartmoor Railway are planning to run an express passenger train from Okehampton Station to Weymouth on Saturday 14th September 2019.

The train will depart from Okehampton at 08.15 and arrive back at 19.20 giving almost 5 hours in Weymouth.

The outbound train will stop at Dorchester West to drop off passengers but will not pick up on the return journey. Passengers visiting Dorchester must make their own way from Dorchester South to Weymouth to board the return train to Okehampton which leaves at 16.26. There are two trains per hour on this route with a journey time of about 10 mins.

Our Fares

The fares are £37.00 return standard class with children at half price (£18.50).

A coach link from Marhamchurch, Bude, Stratton and Holsworthy to Okehampton Station will be provided at a subsidised fare of £5.00 return and free for those under 16. The coach will be part funded from funds raised by ‘Connect Bude’ from raffles at events held during this year.

I'd  like  to  go!

If you would like to join us on this day out to this famous Dorset seaside resort please book your seats on the Ticket Source website.

Those from the Bude/Holsworthy area are encouraged to book seats in Coach B (purple) to travel with others from your area. We are sorry but first class tickets are now sold out.

If you are interested in the coach link, then please download the coach booking form.

See Visit Dorset's Weymouth page for more information.

Our Aim

This is a not for profit venture aimed at promoting the benefits of good connections for Bude, Holsworthy and the surrounding area when the rail service returns to Okehampton on a regular daily basis.
