West Somerset Railway TV
Supporting the heritage of the West Somerset Railway
West Somerset Railway TV was born in the spring of 2020 when the railway and most of the country was in lockdown, due to the COVID-19 virus. It was born out of a desire to keep railway supporters engaged and informed at a time when most people weren't leaving home at all, except for the most essential trips.
The railway was put into a 'care and maintenance' mode and all was eerily quiet in West Somerset.
A couple of WSRA Trustees came up with the idea of delivering video communications and after discussions with partner organisations and others West Somerset Railway TV was born.
It's very much a collaborative project, bringing together the skills, knowledge and memories of many people associated with the railway. New videos are regularly released across a range of topics, and there is something for everyone.
The project is still in the early stages and if it continues to be well received it is planned to grow and develop it into something quite unique delivering railway related entertainment, education, information and training to a wide cross section of people.
You can see all the videos on the WSR TV Channel HERE
