£19.96
 
Highlights from the 25 minutes of archive cine film include a trip from Shepton Mallet to Witham filmed in the late 1950s and a journey from Witham along the length of the branch to Yatton filmed during 1963.

Cine film taken after the lines closure to passengers shows one of the last Strawberry Specials loading up at Draycott and a trip down the remaining stub of the branch to Cheddar on the RCTS railtour in 1969. The archive cine film is complemented by numerous archive black and white photographs which give a comprehensive look at the lines history.

Modern film shows what is left of the branch today including scenes inside Foster Yeoman's quarry at Merehead and the East Somerset Railway at Cranmore. A full commentary as well as the memories of the men who worked the branch complements the video.
