The Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway - almost always referred to as the S&D - was a greatly loved and well used English railway line connecting Bath and Bournemouth. Our aim is to restore as much of the whole line as possible, from Bournemouth to Bath and to Glastonbury and Wells, using a mix of lobbying, strategic track-bed purchase and restoration of sections of the route as they become viable.
Masbury Station Update!
The appeal for fundraising for the purchase of Masbury Station has now closed. For the full statement of the appeal and station purchase, please see The Somerset and Dorset Railway Heritage Trust's website.
