Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

Just received today is the latest edition of Midsomer Norton's S&D Telegraph. This is even better than usual, and covers the running of the first public trains, a momentous event in the history of the revived S&D.
You know me, I'm a Midsomer Norton fanatic and absolutely love the place. They've done an amazing job down there over the last ten years or so. I'm proud to say that I was very involved there before my family circumstances changed, serving on the board for several years, and loved every minute of it.
The magazine has to be the best in preservation - I always read it from cover to cover and there's never any 'filler' in it. Even the historical articles are excellent. Great stuff!
The editorial leads on the need for MN to bring in more volunteers. I'd urge any of you to get involved down there if you can - it's a great place and a fantastic location to be doing such important work. Remember that as a member at MN you get the Telegraph free, it's also available to non-members for just £2.95.
I'll certainly try to get down there myself to help out this year. I really miss the place.
