ON September 26, 1949 Dorchester train station was renamed Dorchester South to distinguish it from Dorchester West Station.
It had first been opened on June 1, 1847 as part of the Southampton and Dorchester railway and trains had to stop there and turn around before continuing their journey.
Further work was later carried out to add a curved platform and extend the line to Weymouth.
The whole station was rebuilt in 1989 and now faces an exciting future development as part of the Brewery Square scheme to convert it into the first solar powered station.
