In dire, flat, cold, winter conditions Chilcompton Stations position high in the Mendips offers little protection to its arriving and departing passengers. On 12/2/66 Standard 4 2-6-4T 80041 arrives at Chilcompton with the 2pm Templecombe - Bath service which was running under the Emergency Service Regulations made necessary by the failure of the authorities to establish replacement bus services by the initial S & D closure date of 3rd January. This failure led to the extension of scheduled Rail (Steam) services until 5th March. ©Hugh Ballantyne/Rail Photoprints
