About Us

The Blackmore Vale Line Community Rail Partnership (BVCRP) is the local rail partnership covering the stations from Tisbury to Crewkerne. The Rail Partnership was set up in January 2016 and officially launched in Sherborne, West Dorset in March 2016.

Our Community Rail Partnership is strengthened by the commitment of South Western Railway, the main funder, and its responsibility for the development and implementation of a community rail strategy. Our core aims are to promote the area to prospective rail passengers and to work with local people to improve the stations belonging to the rail partnership.
