WEST SOMERSET RAILWAY

FURTHER CHANGE OF LOCO FOR THIS CHARTER.

This date will now revert to being large Prairie No. 5199 as the 7F won't be ready in time and 5199 has arrived at the WSR in time after all.

The charter will commence at Bishops Lydeard at 08.00hrs and run between there and Williton throughout the day with a lunch break/crew change/water back at Bishops Lydeard. The day will finish around 17.30hrs.

I intend to have the loco train heading north for our photos and to use a number of unusual downhill locations for run-pasts that are not possible with “steam on” on service trains.

Parking is available at Bishops Lydeard and there is also plenty of accommodation available in both Bishops Lydeard itself and Taunton which is just 4 miles away with 3 Premier Inns and a Travelodge available.
