Rail down to Radstock

Just an afterthought to the previous post....

90 years ago, when the Whitchurch railway path along the Sturminster valley here was a real, GWR, railway, albeit mostly carrying coal trains, there was a through passenger branchline service from Temple Meads along much the same route as our spanking new GBBN buses will take.

The journey from BTM to Radstock, with 5 intermediate stops, took a few minutes short of an hour.   The trains continued on, to link with the main line at Frome.

There was an evening train, and even a couple of Sunday trains.

West Of England Partnership, be proud of your progress.
