Winter Steam Gala
Join us over the New Years weekend for Mince Pies, a Manor and more!
A festive feast of steam to end the season. Adult, Senior and Rover Tickets available
First, a happy new year to you and all at the CRS.
Continuing to explore our new home territory in Somerset, I walked this afternoon across the bridge over the GW main line at the site of Wellington station. Peering downwards over the parapet I was surprised to see that the goods shed, rail access to which was under a separate bridge arch, still has its loading gauge hanging inside after half a century since it ceased to be used. Adjacent, between the remains of the station platforms, are the two Wellington Emergency Crossovers, one facing and one trailing, comparatively rare these days but very important when single line working has to be introduced. The attached photos show these features.

Most likely traction class 66 although class 56 requested and rather than Hackney Yard the loco will possibly reverse and stable on the Heathfield Branch.

My last offering of this year: Virgin Thunderbird 57308, TIN TIN, on a Cardiff – Taunton local.
At this time, pairs of 57/3s ( in top-tail mode) and coaches were hired in by FGW because of a shortage of DMUs. This arrangement didn’t last long!
Happy New Year to you all,
There's no credit attached so I presume it's in the public domain, l'll leave it it to your discretion whether to use it or not.
Cheers & happy new year
