Yeovil Railway Centre
The Centre was formed in 1994 to preserve the original Southern Railway turntable installed in the late 1940’s and to provide facilities for main line steam. Since then the turntable has been overhauled and visitors can watch, from a special viewing platform, the spectacle of large steam engines being turned and serviced when they call at Yeovil Junction.
