    I'm sorry, but I haven't been to Minehead for 2 weeks, so I don't know which way it's currently facing.

    When I was there on Wednesday 44422 was in the workshop with chimney facing Bishops Lydeard. It could of course be turned before so not sure how it will go out.

    The 4F faces Bishops Lydeard and so will run tender first from BL in the morning.

    Unless they have been turned recently, 53808 will face BL tomorrow and 53809 will face Minehead. <BJ>

    A final and late thank from my wife and I for a wonderful 3 days on the WSR, already looking forward to the Autumn Event. A special thanks to whoever left the shed lights (as requested) on Saturday before the last arrival, a couple of shots to say thanks again and goodnight! P1000224.JPG P1000229.JPG

    Thanks very much, I was surprised that there was only a handful of us doing the evening shots.

    I was one of the loco crew you were chatting too that night (assuming it was you who was there after the other 7F came in on the last train) so thanks for the photos, could I ask did you have any of the shots with the crew in as they were asking me if I had seen any ? A copy would be great if you have.

    Hi Andy - I chatted to quite a few on the platform, could have been me. I have one other shot with a crew member on so I post it. If you want copies you are welcome if you want to send me your email address on a personal message (and I'll see if I can sort out how that works, can't seam to understand it). P1000225.JPG
