The West Somerset Railway's official policy, as I understand it, is that it no longer wishes to run trains into Taunton Station. The early years of the WSR were plagued by problems with BR and the NUR that eventually put paid to any ambitions to link into the national network. With other heritage lines, notably the Swanage Railway, now successfully gaining access to NR stations, should a new attempt be made to reconnect the WSR to the outside world? I visited the WSR last Summer, it's quite galling to catch a bus from Taunton to Bishop's Lydeard in the knowledge that a perfectly useable rail link exists. And flippin' inconvenient. I've heard the argument that the WSR can't afford a mainline certificated train and crew, but other heritage groups are 'affording' it now. It was the WSR's original aim (in 1971) to run trains from Taunton to Minehead, isn't it about time they got there?
