Devonshire Bank seen from bridge no 9 Maple Grove late 1967


Description

The line leading up Devonshire bank and into Devonshire tunnel is seen from bridge No 9 Maple Grove which can be seen in the lower picture. This bridge still stands today. Devonshire Tunnel was one fifth of a mile long not as bad as Combe Down but still unpleasant nonetheless for locomotive crews working their engines hard up the 1 in 50 climb. From a private collection of slides of the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway, taken in the year following closure of the line in 1966
