You made a fine image from that, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ray. The station is fine, and so is the railway but I don't much care for the town
This is probably best in B&W then!
Bill Phillips: The railway is lovely. I just don't like the town much

I would dispute that - the sea front is a fine thing and it is the gateway to Exmoor..
Bill Phillips: I had the misfortune to stay at Butlins in the 60s

People, but no trains to board ... not a good sign
Bill Phillips: They were behind me comrade

Bill Phillips: It was bright sunshine really Philine
HA! Now you make me want to go see it, Bill. grin
Bill Phillips: The railway is a delight Ginnie

I hope the train was in time then....
Nice choice of the B&W; and now get on the train and leave...
Bill Phillips: It was. The West Somerset Railway is a delight.

How could you say such a thing, Bill! You will upset your Somerset compatriots
Bill Phillips: I had the misfortune to stay at Butlitz in the mid 60s. Trauma like that stays with you
On a jet plane , don't know when I will be back again.With your new bike you can leave faster next time.The station looks ok.
Bill Phillips: Station is fine, railway is fine. I just remember staying at Butlins in the 60s
Great atmospheric shot Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard
That's pretty funny but I hope no one from Minehead reads this.
Bill Phillips: I don't much care for the town but the railway is a delight
I found most of Minehead quite nice but the Butlins end leaves a bit to be desired.
Bill Phillips: I stayed there in 1965 and it was awful
It looked different when we were there when they had a beer festival on with guest star Tornado

Bill Phillips: The West Somerset Railway is a delight Janet. I stayed at Butlins in 1965 and have never forgotten how awful it was grin
Even that looks unpleasant, Bill....I don't mean your pic'!
Bill Phillips: The station is OK and the West Somerset Railway is great. I just remember staying at Butlins in 1965.....nuff said?
And even that is a pretty dismal affair smile
Bill Phillips: We had just arrived

Bill Phillips: It was dreadful!

Minehead used to be a nice place; we had several happy holidays there before the yob culture infected Butlin's. Our last trip was in 1976; the last week of the very hot spell; I can remember fires from the railway close to the fence. I wonder if our Monopoly et is still on top of one of the cupboards in our "luxury" chalet. I've been to a couple of Spring Galas on the WSR; not something I would normally do as a NG fan.
Bill Phillips: The West Somerset is great. Butlins is much changed from the 60s but i can't take to Minehead
