Porlock former bus shelter

One of the more unusual survivals from Blue Motors of Minehead - an old office and bus shelter moved and converted to a cricket pavilion (see article below).


Tim Edmonds - research interests and recent publications

My main research interests are in railway subjects, but I am interested in other aspects of transport history and have recently researched road and maritime history in west Somerset. I am presently researching some aspects of local road transport history near my home in Oxfordshire, and investigating the way that the term 'train station' has replaced 'railway station' in popular usage.

Some of my recent publications are:


Alford Valley Railway station Alford Valley Railway train departing

Two photos taken on the Alford Valley Railway on 29 June 1989 that didn't make it into the article in Narrow Gauge World (see above). Both show former Severn-Trent Water No 87022 (MR22221/1964) at Alford - on the left the loco is running round its train and on the right it is departing on a run to Haughton Park.
