The sleeper pile has finally been moved after a Herculean effort by some of the track team over the previous week. And suddenly double track is on the cards again as the ballast reappears! Even on the extension the trackbed is beginning to look ready for double track!
The S&D will be one of only two double track heritage lines in the country (the other of course being the Great Central). The line back to Radstock will be single however as the route will be shared with cycles, but hopefully the whole Midsomer Norton to Shepton section will be double ...
