25.10.10

Updated Links page. (Removed dead links)

23.01.09

Removed a couple of dead links.

09.10.07

Updated link on the 'Shillingstone' Page.

Site migrated to another new server - A Dell PowerEdge 2950 (Same host, but more power/bandwidth etc. and cheaper!).

05.05.07

Site migrated to a new server - A Dell PowerEdge 1855 Blade Server - More speed, bandwidth & network connectivity etc.

20.04.07

Updated some links and added new links to the 'links' page.

04.02.07

This site is now 10 years old!!

09.04.06

Added link to Richard Ferris's new S&D picture web site to the 'links' page.

12.02.04

Updated/corrected information to the 'locomotives' page - (No's 19 + 20 built in 1866).

Corrected a mistake on the distance table page (Henstridge).
Expanded distance tables page on to Bournemouth West.

05.12.03

Site now permanently hosted on another server. The URL has also changed to 'sdjr.net'. This is due to the rather complex nature of transferring a ' .info ' domain name to another host. (.co.uk etc. are relatively simple!).
However, the old 'www.sdjr.info' URL will automatically forward anyone to the new server. (see entry for 22.09.23 below for more information).

19.10.03

Minor navigation improvements - Clicking the 'Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway' logo at the top of each page now takes you back to the home page.

22.09.03

Site now temporarily hosted on another web server.
Due to costs, this is a shared server, and linking directly to pages other than the 'index.html' page will result in an error message.
Please update any links you may have to individual pages.
Sorry about this, but my original host wanted 'silly money' to increase server space etc. I now use my own existing server space and domain I have with another host for other purposes until a final solution is found.
