East Somerset Railway is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a gala weekend at Merehead Quarry and a national rail network link with Westbury.

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

They tried to break into the shop at the railway station, between Sunday, February 5 and Wednesday, February 8, damaging the roller shutter door and a security light. But they failed to get in and nothing was stolen.

I have been watching The Damned United, which is a lesson relevant for today.
