Update 14th June 2014. By Matt Cambourne, photos by Ian R.

We had a superb Mixed Traffic Weekend last weekend and the weather was on our
side largely this year.

Highlights included double headed Warships, double headed Westerns and an 11
coach "mega train" from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead and return operating "limited

Generally the event went well barring a minor fault with a loco on Sunday afternoon
which caused some delays.

To commemorate D-Day we affixed a wreath to the front of several of the trains
running around as pictured below.

Meanwhile Diesel running days are in full swing now, see the diesel running dates
page for more info. The first photo below from Ian shows D7017 working the diagram
the previous weekend.

D6575 successfully worked the diagram on Friday 13th. It wasn't an unlucky day for
DEPG Member Secondman Jason who was examined as competent to be a Driver on
the loco. Congratulations to Jason and welcome to the Diesel Driver ranks!
