The West Somerset Railway
The West Somerset Railway
  • Description
  • Reviews

The West Somerset line runs for 23 miles through some of the finest scenery in South West England, starting at Norton Fitzwarren near Taunton, where it meets the main line of Network Rail to Exeter, Plymouth and Penzance, and climbs through the very scenic Quantock hills area of outstanding natural beauty until it reaches the sea near Watchet and then climbs back inland for a few miles before rejoining the coast at Blue Anchor and the final 3 miles into Minehead.

Don Bishop has captured the line working through all the seasons over some 15 plus years with a particular emphasis on ‘steam in the landscape’ photographs showing the railway going about its business with the wonderful varied landscape around it. Don particularly likes to capture steam action in the months between October and April when the light is at its best, the sun lower in the sky crisper.

Through the 144 pictures included in the book Don has aimed to show the WSR at its best with the aim of encouraging the reader to visit the line and contribute towards its ongoing success. A great variety of locomotives and trains that have worked over the line in recent years are seen, ranging from single coach Auto trains to 1,000+ ton stone trains for the sea defence rebuilding programme at Minehead. ISBN 1841144452, hardback, 214x230mm, 144 pages.
