Milk loading dock and vans for milk train to London [or could be returning empties]. Gillingham, Semley and Tisbury all had rail sidings where milk churns containing skimmed milk could be transported to the London market. Gillingham had two creameries at least; one in Station Road. In the 1930s specialised milk tankers were introduced and United Dairies had an unloading platform at Vauxhall station, where milk was piped to its bottling and distribution factory at 5 South Lambeth Road. Train may have originated at Yeovil Town and collected milk vans along the way. Some came from the Somerset & Dorset Railway's stations, via Templecombe

View looking south over Gillingham Dorset railway station on the LSWR and SR main line from London Waterloo to Exeter and eventually Plymouth or Padstow. The brickfield behind the station is now an industrial estate.

Note the milk churns being loaded or unloaded.

This the West end of the station, with the footbridge and the western part of the platforms in view. Unfortunately the interesting Engine Shed (73D) was to the East of the station.

An even clearer image of a LSWR station on the West of England main line at Gillingham Dorset.



This view is sharper than Axminster.
