off s&d wanderings ...
With a customary shudder common to all S&D fans, I bravely visited Washford on the GWR Minehead branch today. Alarmingly, as I stepped foot on the platform, this toy engine in a garish blue pulling horrible chocolate-and-cream coaches passed by. I thought for a minute I'd been transported to the island of Sodor!
It was the best medicine possible when I spied across the platform this vision of loveliness, the old box from Burnham-on-Sea on the immortal S&D!
This is the hub of the S&D museum at Washford.
Nicest touch was this small length of two-foot gauge track representing the old peat line that crossed the branch, complete with some excellent restored wagons and wagon turntables.
