‘The Story of the West Somerset Railway’
Our next DVD in the ‘story’ series looks at the 22-mile long heritage railway in West
Somerset. From the last days in BR ownership and the transfer to the
preservation era, we see rare films from local archives showing the beginnings of the
longest preserved line in the UK. We examine the line in detail and its locomotives used
between Bishops Lydeard in the east right through to Minehead positioned on the
Bristol Channel. A full array of locomotives including main line visitors over the years
right up to date. We see overhauls taking place in the works at Minehead and the
delightful stations along the route. 60 minutes duration £12.95
