Bishops Lydeard Station Shop


Always open when the trains are running

Run by volunteers under the guidance of WSRA Retail Manager Kate Beard, the Bishops Lydeard station shop has become the place to go for transport books (new and antiquarian), diecast models and everything model railway.


The shop sells a wide range of WSR souvenirs, gifts, cards and calendars, not forgetting your morning newspaper to take on the train.



In December we will be open when the festive trains are running.  For the timetable please see

The shop will close for a winter break from 2nd January until Saturday 20th when we again open from 10:00 - 15:00.  Saturday only opening continues until the 2018 season starts in February.

Do you have any unwanted transport books, railway ephemera or models?

Donations are gratefully received and the proceeds go towards West Somerset Railway projects.

After  successful 2017 Galas, our stock of donated books and magazines needs to be replenished. If you are clearing your shelves of transport books over the winter, or are aware of friends and relatives disposing of a such a collection, please bear us in mind as the proceeds of these sales represents a good source of fund raising for the WSR’s main supporting charity. Please do let our retail manager  know if you can help us by contacting her on (01823)432125 or by e-mail to
