Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'
Sunday, October 25, 2009
We had a really nice trip to the Gartell Railway this afternoon, the last open day of the season. There were two trains running, both behind steam. I was last there around five years ago and there have been a few changes including the construction of a superb cafe/function room.
We also got to go up in the signalbox where I finally met John Penny who has been a great source of info on the Gartell over the last year or so.
All in all the Gartell is an excellent pointer to how the New S&D could develop, with a really friendly feel and excellent facilities. It does the S&D proud.
