Most of Somerset’s branch lines were closed during or before the Beeching cuts of the 1960s, and these are examined in depth on our journey, from the 792-yard branch at Dunball Wharf near Bridgwater to the industrial railways of North Somerset.
Happily, the county is well blessed with some fine preserved lines: the beautiful East Somerset Railway at Cranmore, the West Somerset Railway, England’s longest standard-gauge heritage railway and many more.
Packed with wonderful images, stunning modern film, archive footage excerpts and fascinating interviews, this DVD is essential viewing for railway enthusiasts.
