The Shillingstone Railway Project (formerly the Shillingstone Station Project) is a heritage railway project based at Shillingstone railway station on the former Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway. It is supported by the North Dorset Railway Trust (NDRT). The medium-term aim is to restore the current lease area (46 miles 58 1⁄2 chains (75.21 km) to 46 mi 76 1⁄2 chains (75.57 km) from Bath Junction) which equates to 1,200 feet (366 m) of single track mainline with loop through the platforms. The signal box, coal store, motor trolley hut, p-way huts, signals and pole route will also be rebuilt, the signalling being controlled by the box in time. The North Dorset trailway runs alongside the formation and up over the 395-foot (120 m) ‘down’ platform.

Shillingstone railway station was a station on the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway (S&DJR), serving the village of Shillingstone in the English county of Dorset. Opened in 1863, the station was located between Sturminster Newton and Blandford Forum stations, although between 1928 and 1956 the next station south was Stourpaine and Durweston Halt. Shillingstone is the last surviving example of a station built by the Dorset Central Railway (one of the forerunners of the S&DJR).
