A history of Romsey’s railways. 

After the Rhinoceros

  • Romsey's first railway ran from Bishopstoke, now Eastleigh to Milford, now Salisbury. The first train ran in 1846. In 1865 a second route was opened that ran from Redbridge, later Southampton, to Andover. This line was nicknamed 'Sprat and Winkle' and was closed in 1964. Romsey still has railway connections and a fine station building.
