The Somerset in Autumn event (27/28th October) went well with all locos performing
Saturday saw D1661 and D7523 both work passenger trains whilst Class 14 D9526 was
used for a Bishops Lydeard-Williton and return goods trip which really looked the part.
Sunday saw Class 33 D6566 and D7523 in use on passenger trains although sadly the
generally good weather of Saturday was not replicated. As usual we played host to quite a
few visitors to our yard and heritage centre over the event.
Next year we can hopefully look forward to some home based Hymek action again after
a break of several years in the form of D7017. A Gala type event has been pencilled in as
well, dates to be advised.

Crowcombe and the 14 on the goods at Lydeard and Crowcombe.
