Remembering when West Moors had a railway station. The London & South Western Railway station opened in August 1867, the line went from Lymington Junction, Brockenhurst, through Holmsley, Ringwood, West Moors, Wimborne and Broadstone before continuing south westward to Wareham and Dorchester. The line was closed to passengers in 1964 with goods traffic using the line to Ringwood from Broadstone Junction until August 1967. West Moors was where occasional military trains served a fuel depot until 1974. After that, a local twice-weekly goods service to Wimborne together with the presence there of an exhibition train company base, kept the western stub of the line in use until 1977. The station was demolished and now the retirement housing Castleman Court stands in its place.
