The scenic railway from Bristol to Weymouth

Bristol to Weymouth Line Guide

This guide was introduced in 2003. Issued three times a year, in December, May and September, it includes a large print timetable with minimal notes. Traditionally, each edition focused on different destinations and features along the line to give inspiration for days out and holidays, but the Line Guide for January to May 2019 is a little different. This time it celebrates some of the impressive achievements of volunteers and community groups along the line, includes a very brief history from 2003 to 2018 and most importantly takes the opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed ideas, compliments and criticisms. These helped the guide to evolve over time into a joint community production. Thank you to everyone who participated in that venture.
