This is the 14th in a series of books depicting the first 25 years of British Railways, and the first to concentrate on a single line. It covers the Somerset & Dorset, a line which captured the imagination of enthusiasts achieving cult status. Most attention was on the 26¼ miles between Bath and Evercreech Junction. In contrast, the line south of Templecombe to Bournemouth was very much a poor relation with enthusiasts. Except for summer Saturdays when through holiday trains ran, the Somerset & Dorset was essentially a secondary line with a reasonable amount of goods and coal traffic on the northern section. We hope to have struck a reasonable balance between the two aspects of this rather Jekyll and Hyde line.
