Jim Clemens Collection No.9.

Today the railways of Somerset have been decimated. In the 1960’s there were so many interconnecting branches feeding the main lines through the county. Once again, Jim visited them before closure and has left us this invaluable record of the country railway.

We begin in the north of the country with rare 1930’s footage of the Weston Clevedon and Portishead Railway followed by scenes of the Clevedon miniature railway before travelling the complete length of the Cheddar Valley and East Somerset line from Yatton to Witham.

We visit the long lamented Somerset and Dorset line from Bath to Templecombe with its 2-8-0’s and 4F’s mingling with Standards and Ivatt tanks before travelling the whole length of the Highbridge and Burnham branch to the sea before heading for Taunton and all stations to Chard.

Then moving eastwards to Yeovil Junction, Town and Pen Mill, we traverse the route back to Taunton via Martock and Athelney all stations. A Summer Saturday at Norton Fitzwarren in 1959 leads to a journey by DMU over the Minehead line before closure and preservation.

Finally a 43xx GWR mogul trip from Taunton to Dulverton from Taunton completes our journey.

A veritable wealth of nostalgia including the rare 1930s film in Black & White of the Weston, Clevedon and Portishead Railway.

Motive power includes GWR Panniers, Prairies, Castles and Halls, Southern S15, M7 and Bulleids, Midland 4F’s, 7F’s and BR Standards.
