View to the south of Midsomer Norton soon to be visible from the train.

Trackbed looking towards Midsomer Norton.
I took what is probably going to be my last ever opportunity to see the undisturbed trackbed to the south of the station - the railway presence should begin to make itself known within a few days as track materials etc begin to find themselves on the new section of line. It's a very pleasant if a little overgrown walk through clasic S&D countryside, with blackberries growing both sides! We met a family blackberry picking - wonder if they realise that within a few years trains will be running along this track?
We had a very successful weekend with Driver for a Fiver plus shop and catering sales - a real eye opener to the potential that's out there!
