Locomotive Duty Roster

This roster is provided here for general information purposes only.
On any particular day there may be alterations to the roster to suit operational requirements.
Visitors intending to travel to the railway to see a specific locomotive operating are
advised to check the locomotive workings on the day here,
or by telephoning the Sales and Information Office on 01825 720800.

Weekly train running information is available providing details of planned stock usage.

Details of the full October Locomotive Roster are awaited
The steam locos likely to be used on our trains this month are
SECR P No.323 'Bluebell', SECR O1 No.65, SR S15 No.847 and BR 5MT No.73082 'Camelot'.

Note: SECR Locomotive No.178 is visiting the National Railway Museum in York until further notice, giving brake-van rides in the yard.
The planned visit of No.73082 'Camelot' to the West Somerset Railway for their Autumn Steam Gala has sadly been cancelled (or rather, probably postponed until another occasion).
