Anniversary of S&D's launch marked this month
This month marks the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Somerset & Dorset Railway through the amalgamation of the Dorset Central and Somerset Central railways in 1862.
Aubrey Punter, who was a fireman on the last northbound Pines Express, on the loco Evening Star, said they had arrived at Bath's Green Park station "with worst lot of coal we ever had".
The last Pines carried Joy and Graham Jewiss, who had been married in Bath on September 8, 1962, and were travelling to Bournemouth to fly to the Channel Islands for their honeymoon. The Green Park stationmaster arranged for their fares to be paid. The couple now live in Minehead.
The Pines Express originated in 1910 as a Manchester-Bournemouth restaurant car express which was given its name in 1927 apparently because of the number of pine trees in the resort area.
