An unusual distance shot of Templecombe taken from the site of the second S&D station in Templecombe. You can make out the signalbox on the main line station which was converted into a station building when the station was reopened in 1983. This shot is around 1970.
As the S&D begins to reappear the historical aspects of the line become even more intriguing and I'm still picking up unusual shots whenever I can. I reckon the S&D will become the most recorded and photographed line in the whole world as the decades pass, and more and more old shots will surface at the same time as new photographic opportunities arise as more and more of the line comes back into use. But PLEASE keep recording the line between closure and reopening - it is all history and all relevant. This Inbetweener time may become one of the most fascinating of all - future generations will find it almost impossible to believe that there was a time when this most important transport asset was not even being used and that we were forced to rely on cars on tiny llittle roads!
