Cranmore West railway station

Cranmore West is a railway station on the East Somerset Railway. Most regular services stop at Cranmore West to allow visitors to see the engine shed; the station provides visitors with benches and there are toilets across the line at the locomotive sheds. The East Somerset Railway's shed and workshop are both located here as well as the Sentinel Diesel Preservation Group's and Cranmore Traincare and Maintenance Service's sheds; the main shed consists of a 2 road shed with an inspection pit on one road. It was built by David Shepherd to be able to contain both 75029'Green Knight' and 92203'Black Prince' on one road. A small yard surrounds the facility and there is a footpath from Cranmore West station which connects with Cranmore station. Coaling and watering facilities are located here for steam locomotives. Operations on the East Somerset Railway started at Cranmore West because Cranmore was still being used for BR freight traffic; the platform was built using materials from the 1928 Ilton Halt of the Chard branch line.

The platform was reconstructed and became Cranmore West in 1978. East Somerset Railway East Somerset Railway Website

Shades of Liberty

Shades of Liberty is the debut studio album from Belfast new wave/rock band Silent Running. It was released in 1984 by EMI, produced by Peter Walsh. Prior to signing to EMI, Silent Running recruited George Beavis on keyboards and together the band recorded tracks such as "Speed of Life" for their proposed first album. However, Beavis was subsequently replaced with Alex White; the line-up recorded Shades of Liberty. Three singles were released from the album: "Emotional Warfare", "Young Hearts", "Sticks and Stones". Despite attempts to gain commercial success, the band never achieved the desired breakthrough. "Young Hearts" was the only single to make a chart appearance in the UK, where it reached No. 92. Shades of Liberty failed to chart. Both "Young Hearts" and "Sticks and Stones" were released within the UK and Europe only, while "Emotional Warfare" was released in America and Europe. Shades of Liberty was the band's only album release for EMI. A second album for EMI was planned and the single "No Faith is Blind" preceded it in 1985.

However, the limited success of the single resulted in the label cancelling the second album and dropping the band. They would sign to Atlantic Records after; the album was recorded at both The Manor and Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin, while it was mixed at The Manor and Air Studios. It was recorded during January-February 1984; the album was released by EMI Records in Europe and North America. In America and Canada, the album was titled Emotional Warfare, after the leading single; the release featured different front artwork, with a black background replacing the white of the European sleeve. The back artwork on the European and North America editions are different; the album has not seen a CD release, except an unofficial one by the Lost 80s Record Company in 2013. Despite many attempts and campaigns by an avid, loyal & active online fanbase to have an official release, the album has sadly been overlooked by companies like Cherry red/ Cherry pop in favour of less popular and less desired releases A music video was filmed to promote the "Emotional Warfare" and "Young Hearts" singles.

In 1984, the band appeared on UK TV show The Tube, where they performed "Emotional Warfare" and "Sticks and Stones". On the German TV show Musik Convoy, the band performed "Young Hearts". Upon release, the album received a five out of five star review in the Melody Maker magazine headlined "Silent Classic". In the American magazine Billboard, Shades of Liberty was included under the'Recommended' section of the'Pop' albums section; the magazine described the album as "U2-style wall of sound to a disco beat."
