The West Somerset Railway Heritage Trust WSRHT

Launch of new 40th Anniversary book

Posted on June 8, 2019

The West Somerset Steam Railway Trust (WSSRT) has published a new 40th Anniversary book chronicling some personal memories and momentous events of the last four decades. The WSSRT hosted a book signing to launch the new book on the evening of Friday 7 June in the Gauge Museum at Bishops Lydeard. Despite the pouring rain and strong winds approximately 70 guests braved the wintery conditions to attend the event. The guests were not only rewarded by being able to meet the three authors they were also able to visit the museum model railway, Gauge Junction and watch the simulated operation of Powderham signal box on a busy summer’s day as happy holiday makers travelled westwards by train along the Exe Estuary. Quantock Brewery were also present providing guests with the opportunity to try tasters of the new ‘Quantock Steamer’ ale, brewed in commemoration of the WSR 40th Anniversary.

Joint authors/editors Ian Coleby, Allan Stanistreet and Ian Tabrett
