Once again, we are pleased to offer diesel services on selected dates, in collaboration with our friends at the Diesel and Electric Preservation group based at Williton.

Services will begin at Bishops Lydeard and be hauled by a Heritage diesel locomotive, through the Quantock Hills and along the West Somerset coast into the picturesque Dunster Station before a return journey to Bishops Lydeard. On these very special extended running days, once the train returns to Bishops Lydeard, it will then head to Norton Fitzwarren before returning once again to Bishops Lydeard. Extended running dates are marked with a * below. 

 

The dates and locos are as follows 

17th July - Hymek D7018 *

31st July - Hymek D7018 

7th August - Hymek D7018 *

21st August - Crompton pair, top and tail, to celebrate thier 60th Birthday this year!

25th September - Hymek D7018 *
