Dean railway station, also known as Dean (Wilts) railway station, is a railway station serving the village of West Dean in the English county of Wiltshire. The station is on the Wessex Main Line 9 miles (14 km) south east of Salisbury. Whilst the station building is in Wiltshire, the platforms straddle the county boundary with Hampshire.
South West Trains operate a regular service between Salisbury and Romsey via Southampton Central. This runs hourly during the week, with a two-hourly service on Sundays, and uses 2-car Class 158 units. As a result of this the number of Great Western Railway services between Portsmouth Harbour and Cardiff that stop at Dean was reduced. As of October 2011, there are no Great Western Railway trains stopping at Dean, although the station is still managed by the company.
