Although NLS' range of town plans is concentrating on the West Country, they have not as yet scanned Radstock, unfortunately, so I have had to use the 25" series. There are a few departures from the OS plan, partly because I hae me doots about some of the alignments, but more importantly because I wanted to show the 1936-37 alterations to the layout, primarily affecting the ladder of slips across the yard and the connection into the Up Main. Whilst excluding what I take to be the tramways, I have included the lower end of the Clandown Branch, and the standard gauge incline across the bridge giving access to Tyning colliery and batches. Also shown are the connection towards Ludlows and the British Wagon Works tracks, the latter a mess of tight curves which I have eased somewhat. I got to know the shed area fairly intimately when working with the S&D Circle/Trust in the years it occupied the Radstock site (early 1970's), so preparation of this layout has brought back some fond memories! Hope this may be of some interest.
