Visiting Yeovil Railway Centre
I haven't been to Yeovil Railway Centre yet...
In the early 1990 s, with the increasing popularity of railway preservation it became known to local railway staff and enthusiasts that the future of the turntable at Yeovil Junction was being discussed with a view to disposal to a preserved railway. The 70ft turntable, built by Cowans and Sheldon of Glasgow in 1947, had been left in situ after the end of steam on the Waterloo - Exeter route, possibly as a result of the difficulty of removal. It had seen very occasional use for turning engineering machines etc but it had come to prominence during the late 1980 s when the Salisbury Area Manager for British Rail, Gerald Daniels, had organised various special events including steam specials from Salisbury to Yeovil Junction.
