The exhibition planned for 8-9 January 2022 is cancelled. It is hoped to re-schedule it during the summer.

As with the exhibition planned for January 2021, the situation has been overshadowed by Covid.

Meanwhile, Tim Chapman has supplied a video of his layout of Templecombe Lower, complete with signals and Whitaker apparatus. The layout illustrates the complex workings that took place between the S&D and the L&SWR mainline at Templecombe.

Here are some photos, details and video of past exhibitions:
