TRAINS ON THE WEST SOMERSET RAILWAY.
As promised (yawn yawn say most) indulge me please I'm 3/4 of the way through life and this brings back so many memories of good times. Also as promised no technical talk during these blogs. On a recent visit to Minehead and the West Somerset Railway we had especially picked out a w/end, when their were special guest trains and special events. This was wonderful as there were enough different trains to keep me happy. Above the less said the better but Sue insisted I put on this picture, mind its a nice looking big heavy engine, number 42968.
Above the footplate of 88 a really lovely looking engine in a beautiful blue livery.(train below)
Above engine 5553 ran trains while also hosting training sesions for those wishing to learn to be a fully skilled train driver,believe it or not, it does take quite a lot of skill to drive one. So come on if dad or grandad (or Mum) has ever had a hankering to drive a train then here's the place to learn.
Above 44422 this is the engine that pulled the carriages we travelled on.
Above it rained later on in the day so some photo's were not so good (should have took them in the morning). Below a shot of the lovely little tank engine 662 taken in the sunshine of morning.
