March 2016 witnessed the 50th anniversary of the closure of quite possibly the most celebrated of all our lines. This DVD examines the final years of the railway and what has happened to the line and its stations during the past 50 years.
Many ex-S&D staff recall their times working on the railway and we visit the various preservation sites that have sprung up along the route. The programme has unseen archive footage of the line and is produced in association with the Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust based at Washford on the West Somerset Railway.
Also featured is bonus archive film along the branch to Highbridge and never-before-seen out-takes from the BAC film unit film with original sound track and a survey of the line following closure. Plus, a visit in 2006 to Bath Green Park of 7F No. 53809, latest film on the preservation schemes at Midsomer Norton and at Shillingstone and a special feature on the S&D Railway Trust at Washford from 1976 to 2015.
