The Quantock Belle and the Winter Steam Festival Published: 6th November 2017

The West Somerset Railway will be holding our annual Winter Steam Festival on 29th and 30th December 2017. 

For the very first time, the Quantock Belle will operate a gala-style ‘walk on’ breakfast and luncheon service during both days of the forthcoming Winter Steam Festival.  31 seats will be available on each service on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

They will offer Full English Breakfast on the 9.35am departure from Bishops Lydeard and the 11.30am from Minehead each day.

A choice of a hot lunch will be available on the 1.30pm from Bishops Lydeard and the 3.30pm from Minehead.

The Quantock Belle Manager said "We are delighted to now be involved in this ‘feel good’ event and hope we will prove successful enough for QB to become a regular component of Winter Steam Festival. Rest assured, neither turkey nor mince pies will appear on the menu!  We will though upgrade our breakfast offer by using sausages hand made by Thorne’s Butchers of Wiveliscombe, the QBs regular meat supplier for many years."
