Since 1976 Washford station has been home to the Somerset and Dorset Railway Trust whose collection of wagons in their sidings evoke recollections of the days when wayside stations had their own goods yards.
Inside the building the Trust has gathered together many artefacts relating to the Somerset and Dorset line which ran between Bath and Bournemouth and was closed in 1966. (The largest item they own is steam locomotive number 88 which regularly works trains on the WSR).
You can also try your hand at signalling in the demonstration signal box on the platform. The Washford Inn is right alongside the station and it is a short walk to Cleeve Abbey, the White Horse Inn and Torre Cider farm. During the winter of 2010/11 the station was rewired and a new sales area was created.
