Re: Special which visited goods only lines

Ah, good call! Fairly sure it was this one in 2007: https://www.sixbellsjunction.co.uk/00s/070603nr.htm I think you could perhaps buy tickets for certain segments or maybe you could opt out of some journeys, because although I recall Portbury, Tytherington & Severn Beach, I have no memory of Bath, o...

Special which visited goods only lines

Can anybody recall a special train which, probably on a weekend, visited various lines around Bristol not usually open for passenger services? It was possibly at least 20 years ago, I was on it, but can't recall exactly where we went, though I have memories of being on the line to Portishead (as far...

Kelston Station

It's good to be back, thanks! I was looking at a photo of Kelston Station, as it was, and trying to work out exactly where it would be on the Bristol to Bath Railway Path. Can anybody indicate, using this recent image from Google maps? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48928464101_9d1108d9d9_k.jpg
