Bournemouth West railway station was a railway station in
Bournemouth, Dorset, England. It closed on 4th October 1965. The station was the southern terminus of the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway, as well as being the terminus for trains from London Waterloo and other local trains.
The station was closed during the electrification of the London Waterloo-Bournemouth line. Originally the closure was meant to be temporary pending completion of the electrification project, as it was thought that Bournemouth Central did not have enough capacity to handle all of Bournemouth's trains. Experience during the temporary closure showed that the newly electrified Central station could handle all the trains, so Bournemouth West never re-opened.
The station was demolished shortly after closure and the site is now occupied by a car park and the A338 Wessex Way. Bournemouth Train Care depot, former home of the Class 442 Wessex Electrics, occupies the former approaches to the station.
