While the S&D generally measured distances from Bath Junction, the tables below show cumulative distances and timings from Bath Green Park railway station instead. Information is taken from 1950s timetables for coal-burning steam trains and the 1910 Bradshaw's guidebook. Additional figures were estimated using The Somerset & Dorset Railway Trust's list of numbered bridges (.pdf). Modern wood-burning steam, diesel multiple-unit or electric trains will be faster.
