On Tuesday 7th June 2022, Class 35 ‘Hymek’ D7018 will haul a ‘Quantock Belle‘ special charter service from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead and back.

NOTE: This service is not available for public use.

The booked departure times for this special charter service are as follows:

     Depart BL 1315 arrive MD 1501

     Depart MD 1730 arrive BL 1850

Other services are also scheduled to run – see the WSR BLUE timetable page for details.


UPDATED INFORMATION – the 1000 MD diagram in the BLUE timetable on Sunday 12th June is now rostered for the visiting Class 17 ‘Clayton’ D8568, not the Class 35 ‘Hymek’ as previously advertised.


We have just introduced a new DIESEL RUNNING DATES page and we will be maintaining this in parallel to DIESELGEN bulletins. This new page is a ‘one-stop-shop’ approach to diesel running on the WSR.


The webcams provide a very good way of watching the action from afar. Here are the links:
