Hardback, good condition, owners name removed

This volume develops this theme of volume 1 in greater detail by taking a much closer look at the real estate as it evolved and at the motive power department and its locomotives. All major structures of the station and yard are described and in most cases there is a detailed scale drawing and photograph which will prove invaluable to modellers. The development of the yard is fully chronicled and a working history given of all resident locomotives in addition to illustrations of each class.

Accounts of accidents and farther anecdotal material are included as well as details of the colliery workings -“Up to Clandown, Out to Braysdown” – and related industries.

What emerges is a picture of an active and busy railway which for very nearly a hundred years played a vital part in the economy of this Somerset market town.

Hardback with dust jacket, 160 pages, black & white photographs, track plans, drawings
