    Yes, we hope to run a Winter Steam Festival of some kind hopefully. Keep your eye out for more info. We have a gala planning meeting to discuss options on Thursday so cannot say more at this stage I'm afraid. Good news for once :)

    Many heritage railways are currently struggling to survive - apparently it's different in Somerset - they are struggling to die. For gawds sake get a grip and either start working together or simply pack it all in. The reported antics remind me...

    If you are going to run a Santa anywhere on the WSR then starting from Bishops Lydeard is the obvious location. Minehead - population 12,000 (in the winter). Taunton - population 70,000. And then there is the M5. It's a no brainer.

    90% of the Admins are PLC staff so it’s hardly going to be against it. On the subject of Santa trains, I can understand why people are questioning it. We were told that the board didn’t feel comfortable with running the trains during what was...
