Ropley was originally opened by the Mid-Hants Railway in 1865 and later leased and then owned by the LSWR and the Southern Railway. It was closed by British Rail in 1973.

It was re-opened 4 years later by the preserved Mid-Hants Railway (also known as the Watercress Line) and is one of the intermediate stops on their re-opened line between Alton and Alresford. Ropley is the engineering centre of the preserved railway with the line's main locomotive shed and workshops next to the station. Ropley has footbridges at either end of the station, one of the bridges allows access to the workshop area.
The line is home to preserved steam and diesels like 33 053
