    The visiting Manors won't have arrived in May. 6960 will be the only green loco about then.

    Could be a great excursion on the WSR section. I have an idea for a Headboard
    HST125 minus 100mph. Just My humour not to be taken seriously.

    Given that it raised a laugh, is there anyone out there in 'Nat Pres land' who could do the design work for an 'inter-village 25' badge based on the below and the WSR's heritage DMU?

    Back in the very early 1980's there were a number of WSR logos and catch phrases on timetable hand-outs, I can remember "Think again, take a train, Quantock Rail" and "Inter-Village 25". Others may remember the exact year they appeared and if any written evidence remains of either. These were predominately aimed at the all DMU Saturday services which carried large numbers of Butlins visitors on change-over days, no steam on those days to slow up the shuttle services between Bishops Lydeard and Minehead.

    How quickly time passes. It was a year ago today that 4F 44422 arrived at the railway.

    The loco has proved very popular with the general public and enthusiasts alike. <BJ>
