The Lyme Railway – Exhibition Extended!

Posted on: 28th December 2015

Just a quick note to say that the popular railway exhibition at Lyme Regis Museum will continue into the New Year and until further notice. Currently on display in the Rotunda Gallery, “The Lyme Railway: Axed Fifty Years Ago” marks the 50th anniversary of Dr Beeching’s closure of the line from Axminster to Lyme Regis. The exhibition shows visitors what the line was like during its short life from 1903 to 1965, including a newly commissioned painting, The Early Train to Lyme on Cannington Viaduct, by accomplished local transport artist Michael Stride.
