Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

Some views from last Sunday on the second day of the open weekend. A big feature was the brake van rides and for Sunday people were actually using the train to get from A to B. Not Midsomer Norton to Chilcompton (or Bath to Bournemouth) but for the short trip from the down platform via the end of the line and back to the up platform signalbox.
The signalbox is now the real star of the station, having risen from a hole in the ground just 18 months ago. It's now almost complete externally and the inside is looking very good too with the frame and levers now painted and the woodstove in place. It was very busy at the weekend with almost every visitor ascending the stairs and having a go on the levers!
