Class 33 ‘Crompton’ D6566 (33 048) was at work yesterday hauling a crew training special comprising six newly-painted Mark 1 coaches between Bishops Lydeard and Williton. The all-DEPG crew comprised driver Richard Jones and secondman Terry Deacon, both under the watchful eye of Traction Inspector John Leach. Also riding on the train was Colin Girle who would later be driving on the return leg of the journey. These crew training specials are part of the preparations for the re-opening of the WSR for public services on 22nd May 2021.
