CHANGE OF LOCO AND CHARTER PLAN FOR THIS DATE. 5199 charter now on 8th May.
This charter sees an opportunity to recreate an S&D goods train of the 1950’s with the S&D 7F No. 53808 on a mixed goods train, so typical of Bath to Evercreech section of the much missed S&D.
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.
Cost for this charter will be £75.00 per head.
