Just a few hopefully inspirational pics from the volunteers at Midsomer Norton (on the former Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway, closed in March 1966) as they lay the last of the rails and sleepers to the base of the infilled Chilcompton tunnel cutting.

Hopefully it won't be too long before YWR volunteers will begin the same at Fimber, albeit without an infilled cutting to deal with!
