MINEHEAD BRANCH LOCAL

Monday, 8th May 2017

WEST SOMERSET RAILWAY

Several visiting locos have been agreed for the 2017 season on the WSR. The first of these is Llangollen based large Prairie No. 5199, which is currently in BR unlined black livery. Therefore I plan to use this loco on a charter with 4 red/cream coaches to recreate a classic Taunton to Minehead branch train of the 1950’s. Very much a right loco/train on right line.

The charter will commence at Minehead at 07.00hrs and run between there and Williton throughout the day with a longer than usual lunch break/crew change/water back at Minehead. The day will recommence at 15.30hrs with the loco facing the opposite direction for the afternoon session. The charter will

finish around 19.30hrs.

Parking is available at Minehead (chargeable) and there is also plenty of accommodation available in Minehead with a new Premier Inn now available.
