Branch Lines to Chard


This book closely examines the nineteenth century efforts to bring communications to Chard and Ilminster, drawing on records of the companies and their promoters, and provides a detailed look at each of the stations along the route. It uses archive material to explain how the branch lines to Chard were operated, and is enlivened by recollections from railway staff. It is extensively illustrated by photographs spanning the whole period of the railway's existence, together with plans and historic documents. Several of the line's buildings survive today and this volume includes specially prepared drawings of these attractive structures.
