Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

The above is for those people who claim that it will be over 100 years before track returns to Midford so what's the point ...
This is the codicil in the lease agreement that requires Susrans to relocate the cycleway when we relay the line. Bear in mind also that as a public railway we will have full compulsory purchase powers so it's not an issue in any case. It's really up to us when we put the line back in, though personally I don't see a lot of point in laying track until we run real trains, so we're looking at a 20-30 year timeframe for Midford, though not of course on other sections of the line.
Of course the intention is to build a railway AND cycleway between Bath and Bournemouth, and along any other stretch of line we rebuild, so there won't be any conflict, no matter how much some dinosaur types try to talk it up LOL!
