Suggestion is a 2 + 5 classic castle (and you thought you had seen the last HST at Weymouth!)

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 19.30 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) and First Class tickets £52.50 adult / £26.25 child.

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 add your name and contact details to the expressions of interest list held at Bude TIC indicating if you wish to use the coach link.

Alternatively, send us a message with your details, indicating your requirements.

Bookings will open in early August and you will be sent details to enable you to book your seats online. 

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.

Or first visit of an 800, though more likely a pair of 158s
