This season’s final chance to ride behind ‘Hymek’ D7018 will be the ‘excursion special‘ that will run this Saturday 16th October 2021 featuring haulage from Bishops Lydeard to Dunster and return with an extension to Norton Fitzwarren on the return leg. The load will be five Mark 1 coaches so there will be plenty of ‘Maybach Music’.

The departure time is 1135 from Bishops Lydeard, returning at 1535.

Tickets can be pre-booked via the WSR website or can be purchased on the day.
