From the series about the closed railway lines of Britain, a nostalgic look at the old line between Bath and Bournemouth.
1966 was a bad year for the thousands of fans of the erstwhile Somerset & Dorset route when, after more than 100 years of service there would be no more trains over this picturesque line between Bath and Bournemouth.
Half a century later much of the route has disappeared but before it did and whilst in moribund state, Jeffery Grayer recorded the scene witnessing the demise of a line and a way of life that has rarely been portrayed before. Much of the material is previously unpublished and will rekindle memories of what once was, and what is now lost forever.
With over 175 photos, mostly in colour, as well as maps and memorabilia.
