19 years ago ...
This is FANTASTIC! Thanks to Brett Scillitoe for sending in this amazing piece of Midford history, Towpath, the journal of the Somerset Railway and Industrial Heritage Trust who were restoring Midford back in the early nineties. We're very grateful for the work they did in clearing the station and trackbed which has helped us no end.
A few familiar names popped up; Laurence Skinnerton has a wonderful fictional piece about an electrified S&D (there were visionaries even back then!) and their membership secretary was none other than Tim Deacon, now filling the same role down at Midsomer Norton.
I wonder how many of these have survived? Brett's sent numbers 6 and 8 - if any readers have any others (including 6 and 8) they wish to let us have in our archive please send them in. S&D history didn't stop in 1966, it's never stopped and I doubt it ever will!
