Our base is located on the West Somerset Railway, and on the A39 between Bridgwater and Minehead, in the village of Washford (Post Code TA23 0PP).

We aim to open the shop and museum on as many days as possible when the WSR are running timetabled trains. Click on the leaflet image for a pdf copy of our museum leaflet which has an introduction to the S&D line and the exhibits that may be viewed at the museum.

The shop and museum will not be open until further notice because of the coronavirus. The West Somerset Railway is also closed. Don’t forget our online sales section which is always open at www.sdrt.org/Sales.html.
