missive from dorset
Recently received is issue 5 of Platform, the excellent magazine of the Shillingstone Railway Project. There are features on the Great Dorset Steam Fair (which was of course inspired by the S&D), bios of the new management team, a piece on Cunarder, a look at Shillingstone's celebration of the Last Pines and even a piece of fiction.
Cover price is £1 and the magazine is available from the group.
There are now FOUR quality magazines featuring the S&D, led by the superb 'Telegraph' from Midsomer Norton, followed by the Washford group's long-running Bulletin and of course the Shillingstone Platform, all being breathlessly chased by the New S&D's recently launched 'Right Lines'. It's amazing that there is still so much to report on this extraordinary line, but with activity at 5 sites along the route perhaps we shouldn't be that surprised!
