West Somerset Railway
The West Somerset Railway (WSR) is a railway line that originally linked Taunton and Watchet. It opened in 1862 and was extended from Watchet to Minehead by the Minehead Railway in 1874. It was closed in 1971 but was then reopened in 1976 as a heritage railway.
At 22.75 miles, it is the longest privately owned passenger rail line in the country, however services normally only operate on the 19.5 miles between Bishops Lydeard and Minehead.
