Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

For those of us that never knew the old S&D I suspect we all think of it as running through a never ending summer, thanks to Ivo's pictures! That's not to say he didn't photograph it under other conditions, there are classic shots of the line in the winter of '63 for example, but the ones that stick in my mind are the ones showing summer expresses.
I can't wait until we are running trains again through that beautiful countryside in beautiful weather like we've had this weekend. The above shots are near but not on the S&D, all three taken in S&D weather! One of the reasons I've been quiet for a few days - making the most of it!
Main news is that we will be taking Midford on in a matter of weeks if not days. Imagine working up there in weather like this!
