Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

A line very close to my heart is the Shoreham to Christ's Hospital line which I saw whilst still open, being just a few miles from where I lived. With the other Horsham route to Guildford this formed a useful cross country route, both lines sadly closed in the 60s, the Shoreham-Christ's Hospital on the same day as the S&D.
There are now stirrings on this route and the beginnings of an ambitious (but perfectly viable) rail restoration, and one of the first steps is a site visit to Cranleigh.
Full details can be found here. If you live in the area it would help them enormously if you were to go along. I'm jealous!
