Our Launch event at Yeovil Railway Centre

Our launch event at Yeovil Railway Centre was a great success, with 60 people present, to hear Chris Austin famed Author and Chris Loder of South West Trains.

We outlined our priorities for this line, which are to concentrate on lobbying for the passing loops at Dinton and Whimple, to enable half-hourly services from Exeter and from Yeovil Junction to Waterloo, resilience for GWR services and ours and increased capacity..

We shall shortly be meeting the new franchisees First and MTR to reinforce our priorities and to have preliminary discussions about the relationship with community and user groups.   There was also a lot of discussion about parking space at many of the stations.
