A man has launched a petition urging the Government to reopen the Somerset and Dorset Railway.
Somerset and Dorset Railway has been out of use for over 40 years
James Type is the spearheading the campaign, and his online petition asks "For the Government to consider reopening the Somerset and Dorset Railway, this is now a much needed transport link from north to south."
The railway, which closed to passengers in 1966, travelled from Bournemouth to Burnham-on-Sea via stops including Shepton Mallet, Glastonbury, Wells and Bridgwater.
So far, 79 people have signed the e-petition.
The petition closes in November. To sign, visit epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/41959
