Jim Boudreau presented “South from Templecombe – A journey on the S&D and a lot more”


A journey with a difference. Not just looking at trains and stations but also the staff that caused the trains to run. 

The talk went back to the formation of the Dorset Central Railway right up to recent scenes that show that there is still some activity along the line currently. Several families feature and jobs not normally mentioned were featured. 

Station staff were illustrated and where known names given to faces. 

Finally there was a feature on the Wimborne area, the original S&D terminus and views of Southern push-pull trains.
