  1. MellishR liked 61624's post in the thread West Somerset Railway General Discussion.

    Perhaps neither of you has noticed that the number of locomotives that the MPD at Minehead is responsible for maintaining has shrunk dramatically in recent times - if the line is so strapped for cash I'm surprised that "economies" haven't been...

    Mmmmmh, try running one without the latter and see how long it lasts. Heritage railways are rather odd places where most people with serious commercial experience tend to perform tasks that are a world away from what they know, such as descaling...

    I have followed the recent 53808 saga with a mixture of sadness and disgust. It was 53808 that first brought me to the WSR over 40 years ago now. No locomotive has more connection with the line and meant more to we old stagers and those at...

    Not a regular contributor, but I can give some details on current ops. Yes, the trains could be better loaded. I have been on museum guide duties at BL for the past three Sundays. The numbers recorded in the museum on each day were 67, 49 and...
