The more important Somerset and Dorset Railway items were donated by one man - Roy Brown. he gave us the whole of his collection. His request was that they should remain just as they were when he took them off the demolition train. His wishes have been followed.
Other items have been donated regularly by visitors and local persons over the years. These are often pieces of family memorabilia.
Various storyboards show the evolution of the Railway Heritage Trust and explain the history of the station and its environs - for instance the Norton Hill Colliery which was situated close by.
