Sitting towards the Weymouth end of the Heart of Wessex line, the station was opened in 1886 as a replacement to the existing local station built 15 years earlier!
The station was famously the subject of a Thomas Hardy poem named At the Railway Station, Upway. This told the story of a young boy waiting for the train back in the days of steam powered engines. Later being developed into a piece of music by Benjamin Britten.
