    West Somerset Railway - Then and Now #97 Bishops Lydeard 1972 / 2017 I have put this pair up really as an excuse to talk about that rather wonderful single slip that used to be here, and was taken out early in the present company's tenure....

    The best thing would be to go to the stakeholder meeting as detailed on the WSR website. Then we should get some facts.

    The root of internicine is from the Latin internecinus, or fight to the death. Chambers Dictionary defines squabble as "A noisy, petty quarrel" so it cannot be both. The implied omparison with the WSRA upheaval is also very wide of the mark....

    I agree. We still have some serious issues to solve here in Somerset. Platitudes (like the above comment about Flying Scotsman - which was a very mixed blessing for the WSR) will not get them tackled. The WSRA has faced up to the difficulties...

    There are a few like minded souls who think that this is long overdue. I hope to see something being put together this winter as the current situation does not represent the excellent work done elsewhere. Apparently, there was an instruction...
