WEST SOMERSET RAILWAY

FULLY BOOKED

The charter will use the WSR based 4F 0-6-0 No. 44422 and one of the S&D 7F 2-8-0’s, most likely No. 53808 as its not certain that 53809 will still be at the WSR at that date, on a passenger rake with as many red/cream coaches as are possible at the front of the train (3 or 4 as things stand). The charter will commence at 08.00hrs at Bishops Lydeard and run throughout the day until 17.30 – 18.00hrs with a short lunchbreak back at Bishops Lydeard whilst crews are changed and locos watered etc. The plan is to face the locos north for this charter so that we can cover some more unusual downhill locations between Bishops Lydeard and Williton, which is the section of line we will concentrate on for this charter.
