    Been way to long since my first post on here...

    I managed to make an early evening trip down to the Portbury Dock Line yesterday. Got caught right at the end by two railway guys that came out of nowhere. They seemed pleasant enough though and gave me a gentle ticking off with the threat of arrest if I return :)

    Some Info:

    The Portishead Railway was a branch line railway running from Portishead in Somerset to the Great Western Main Line in Bristol, England. It was constructed in the 1860s by the Bristol & Portishead Pier and Railway, which was incorporated to build a pier and a 10 mile broad gauge link to the Bristol and Exeter Railway at Bedminster Down. The line closed to passenger traffic in 1964 and freight in 1981. The line was rebuilt and reopened in 2002 for freight trains only from the junction with the Bristol to Taunton Line at Parson Street to the Royal Portbury Docks, via a new spur built in 2000/2.
