The Eastleigh-Romsey Line is the railway line from Eastleigh to Romsey in Hampshire in the United Kingdom. At Eastleigh, trains join the South Western Main Line for onward travel to Southampton and Totton. At Romsey trains most trains terminate, although some join the Wessex Main Line for onward travel to Salisbury and beyond.

The line is not electrified.


The line was opened by the LSWR in 1847. Passenger services ceased in May 1969, except for occasional diverted trains and railtours. The line was reopened for passenger traffic in May 2003 with a re-built station at Chandler's Ford.


Services and stations on this line are operated by South West Trains. It has an hourly service in each direction. It is a useful diversionary route, especially when the lines around Southampton are closed.
