Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

I've been away for a few days but plan to get up to Midford again tomorrow. Hopefully 2012 will see a lot of visits from me!
It's always 'fun' to return to a huge load of emails, and there were a few good 'uns again, including one telling us the S&D can't be rebuilt because in places people have stolen OUR trackbed and included it in their garden! If that's really the case then surely we could just do the same - it'll save us millions!! The same email explained that other sections will never be rebuilt because some tuppeny halfpenny industrial estate has been built on the trackbed. As always we'll simply bypass (and lay sidings) into these places, or simply buy them up unit by unit. I don't understand why some people love to put the tiniest obstacles in our way. What do they expect us to do - go back to living and dying in the same village all our lives?
Crazy stuff, but great fun.
Meanwhile back in the real world (the one where energy is going to be harder and harder to find) the 99% of us that don't believe in conspiracy theories, the need for nostalgia or that oil will always be as cheap as it is now are just getting on with things.
So if you can get up to Midford tomorrow (from midday onwards) where more clearing of the site will take place!
