Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

Swanage station. A line that almost never happened but is now one of the leading heritage lines, which also operates 'real' trains to take visitors from Norden to Swanage, leaving their cars behind.
Wulfric. Born four months early, we were told that he had 0% chance of surviving by the doctors.
The signalbox at Midsomer Norton. Rebuilt from a pile of rubble, now an absolute gem and a credit to the whole heritage movement.
The Rhatische Bahn in Switzerland. A huge network of metre gauge lines running through spectacular scenery, using engineering on an epic scale - and profitable!
A1 Pacific 'Tornado', built 2008. 18 years and £3 million - and many said it would never happen!
The above are some of my own inspirations which keep me working towards reinstatement of the S&D. Let me know yours!
