the other end of the line
This is the current end of the line in the Chilcompton direction, sleeper pile on the right ready for the extension.
The very end of the existing line, with the woods beyond!
The view just beyond the barrier, the old double track main line now a lovely shaded walk through new woodland. The line will be reinstated sympathetically, the only trees removed being those that block the route. This should be a hive of activity in just a few weeks time. Watch this blog to see the changes as they happen!
The new quarter mile of track will transform the set-up at Midsomer Norton from a restored station to a real running railway. We expect a huge increase in membership over the next year with the new track and trains running public services in 2008.
