About the blog

For the past forty-odd years I have pursued an interest in the Railways of Germany however as the end of the line beckons, I have returned to the railway that has always run past my home - the Southern.

Beaminster and its bus

Welcome to those visiting from RMweb. 

Having left the forum in 2013, may I take the opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

The Southern National Omnibus Company had a North Devon and Cornwall area centred on Bude, Bideford, Barnstaple and Ilfracombe and a Somerset and Dorset area centred on Seaton, Yeovil and Weymouth. 

Along the coast from Weymouth and inland to Axminster via Bridport, route 42, served Bridport, Lyme Regis and Axminster, plus everything along the route. 

In the 50s, the road conditions would have restricted the choice of vehicle to single deck Bristols.

Notably the Bristol LS5G from the 40s

Unfortunately, not available as a 4mm model in Southern National livery, it is available from Corgi as a similar green Bath Services vehicle that will need modification.
