Although somewhat superceded by the author's more recent 'Somerset & Dorset Sunset', this earlier volume still deserves a place in the library of any S&D afficionado, with only a handful of the images here being duplicated.

Readers familiar with Michael Welch's other railway offerings will be recognise the consistently high standard of his caption research, coupled with an inspired selection of images from a whole host of well known names. These include Dick Riley, Michael Allen, John Spencer Gilks and that early exponent of the telephoto lens, Trevor Owen.

Covering the last five or so years of the line's operational life, the album perfectly illustrates the S&Ds eclectic mix of ex-LM, ex-SR and ex-GW locomotives and stock, all rubbing shoulders with the tragically short-lived BR Standard types. Following the line southwards from Bath, with a brief excursion along the Highbridge branch, 'S&D Steam Finale' is full of memorable images and forms a fitting tribute to this much-lamented route.
