The West Somerset Railway runs from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead, and at 23 miles is the country's longest standard-gauge preserved railway. Originally a GWR branch line that linked to the main network just to the west of Taunton, the line was closed on 4 January 1971. It was subsequently acquired for preservation and for the last thirty years popular tourist services have operated over the route. The line retains a main-line connection and, over the years, this has been used for the operation of a number of through specials from the national network and the line has also played host to a number of high profile guest locomotives. Tony Whitby has been recording the line, its locomotives and operations for many years and, during this period has acquired an outstandingly varied archive of photographs portraying the line. This new book gives a colourful and scenic view of West Somerset Railway operations over many years which will delight all the many visitors and enthusiasts of this most popular of heritage railways.
