Whilst the WSR has the services of a BR Black Manor I thought it far too good an opportunity to miss doing a day with one of these (although 7820 will have departed the railway a short while before then) and the railways red/cream coaches to recreate the look and feel of the Cambrian in the 1950’s.
The charter will commence at Bishops Lydeard at 08.00hrs and run between there and Williton with the loco facing south, smokebox towards Taunton, where the best opportunities exist. We have exclusive use of the Bishops Lydeard to Williton section throughout the day. We will pause for a short lunch break at Bishops Lydeard and the day will finish around 18.00 – 18.30hrs.
Parking is available at Bishops Lydeard, and there is plenty of accommodation available in the area, including 3 Premier Inn’s, Travelodge and Holiday Inn in Taunton.
Cost for the day is £79.00 (incl VAT) per head with 38 places being available to reflect the 40+ miles for the day.
