West Somerset Railway
Bahamas made a repeat visit to the West Somerset Railway today, the previous tour having been oversubscribed. It ran in the same paths as last time and, similarly, Bahamas came off at Bishops Lydeard to be replaced by a pair of WSR locos for the run to Watchet. The train was then brought back as empty stock to Bishops Lydeard for servicing before returning to Watchet ready for the final departure back to London, once again with Bahamas taking over from Bishops Lydeard. The attached photos show the return train between Bishops Lydeard and Norton Fizwarren.

The halt was about half a mile north of both Manningford Abbots and Manningford Bruce, west of the bridge carrying the Wilcot road over the railway, which had opened in 1862. The two platforms each had a small corrugated iron shelter.
The station was demolished after closure leaving no trace of its existence. The track remains open as part of the Reading to Taunton line. (Information courtesy Wikipedia)
