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.
