  1. Thanks for reviving memories of the old ‘Slow and Dirty’! I remember the line at Stalbridge, just over the Dorset border, with trips for shopping in Bristol and Bournemouth. The signal man allowed me up in his box and helped me pull the heavy manual levers. And I put old pennies on the line to be squashed by the ‘Pines Express’ roaring through. All before the days of Beeching, of course!
