’50 Years Gone – But not forgotten’ – A celebration of the Somerset & Dorset Railway
March 2016 will see the 50th anniversary of the closure of quite possibly the most celebrated of all our lines closed in the 1960s. This DVD examines the final years of the railway and what has happened to the line and its stations during the past 50 years.

The programme has unseen archive footage of the line and is produced in association with the Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust based at Washford on the West Somerset Railway. An added bonus of an archive film along the branch to Highbridge and never-before-seen out-takes from the BAC film unit film with original sound track.

** A survey of the line following closure.
** Visit in 2006 to Bath Green Park of 7F No. 53809.

The new ITV series – Jericho – is about to launch onto our TV screens. In fact the storyline is about the navvies building the viaduct on the Settle-Carlisle railway at Batty Moss, more commonly known as Ribblehead. The book is packed with photographs from throughout its 137-year history, and also delves into the station and tunnel at Blea Moor. Text and facts about the building of the structure in the 1870s and rare photographs of the navvies constructing the viaduct which has become the most important structure on the line. Full coverage of the repairs to the viaduct in the 1980s and 1990s which saved the prospect of the line closing forever. Black and white photographs, plans and rare colour views. Free DVD with every copy of the book depicting the story in film footage and interviews with historians.
