For four days, the West Somerset Railway will hark back to the days where London was linked to the West Country, South/Mid Wales and the West Midlands by Great Western Railway services and locomotives.
Passengers could travel directly to large towns served by express trains. Many coastal resorts such as Minehead, Fowey, Porthcawl and Helston however involved alighting at a junction station and completing the journey on a branch line train, which ambled along in a seemingly timeless manner.
Wherever the trains ran, they were headed by the distinctive (in appearance and sound) steam locomotives of Great Western design, which were in many cases built at the main workshops in Swindon.
So why not join us for a day or more between 3rd and 6th October?
