“With the Quantock Hills as a backdrop, 7F 2-8-0 53808 drifts down the grade from Crowcombe Heathfield past Heathfield Farm with the West Somerset Railway 14:15 Bishops Lydeard – Watchet service on April 11, 2019”, Tim Edmonds tells The Railway Hub.
“This was taken when trains were not working beyond Watchet due to engineering work at Blue Anchor, and were worked top-and-tail due to the lack of a loop at Watchet. Class 33 D6566 was at the back of the train.”
