Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

A very good day up at Midford. There were four of us there, not bad for a Wednesday afternoon! Consequently we got a lot done, including clearing the whole of the wall that stood behind the station building. Covered in ivy, the brickwork once cleared looks almost new. We also cleared a good part of the platform edge and I did a little more exploring, finding a lot of varied brickwork, and plenty of work for the coming weeks!
Only downside is the need to get to Midford using 20th century transport - the road is dreadful! It's very ironic that I need to use a dying mode of transport to reach what will become the main way of getting around in the future - but which is currently devoid of track!
