The West Somerset Railway

The WSR station of Blue Anchor is a 2 minute walk from the camping coach. The railway's web site sums up the country's longest heritage railway...

"Our Railway, a true country branch line of the old Great Western Railway is full of fascination whether you are looking for a nostalgic ride back in time through lovely countryside or to study the railway and industrial heritage which our line preserves..

 

The historic steam locomotives, coaches and wagons, and the buildings of our ten unique stations linked by a twenty mile scenic journey will repay hours of exploration. The surrounding countryside is as varied as it is beautiful.

The gently rolling Quantock hills and distant Exmoor, unspoilt villages and farms nestling in leafy lanes, the cliffs and coast of the Bristol Channel with views of distant South-Wales, confident Church Towers, Dunster's imposing Castle and Minehead's seaside charm are all waiting to be discovered"
 

To see the rail comings and goings at Blue Anchor Station, watch the live 'web cam' here. The web cam page also gives the day's arrivals and departure times for the day. Other WSR station web cams are also available to view.

Also in the Blue Anchor shot is the carriage, just behind the signal post near the centre of the frame.

Visit their website for full details of the railway, timetable, what to see and where to see it - as well as everything to do with the line.

...and for a rainy day...
