Somerset & Bristol Group

The most recent of the L&B's Area Groups being formed in 2013 - although there were individual Bristol and Somerset Groups, it was thought best to combine in order to cover a wider area.  The prime intention is to provide a focus for L&BR Trust members in the west country, to attend shows and other events promoting the Railway and hopefully increasing the membership. We are also planning to undertake small restoration projects. The current thinking is to undertake the reconstruction of one of the 4 ton 4 wheeled vans.
