A view on the West Somerset Railway, c.1997. New houses have since been built to the right of the line. The station name-board shown here has been replaced. The shelter in the foreground was erected in 1996 and painted in GWR colours the following year. The loco (6412) was, I believe, undergoing an overhaul in 1997, but it is so right for the scene that I decided to include it.

Visit the web site of the West Somerset Railway, Britain's longest and (they claim!) most lovingly restored heritage railway. The line runs from Bishops Lydeard, near Taunton, past the Quantock Hills northwards towards the Bristol Channel coast at Minehead.
