(22/03/2012 @ 19:13:00)

Following arrangements made with Network Rail and DBS it has been possible to arrange for the turning of 70000 on the triangle at Norton Fitzwarren. This means that there will be an alteration to the direction the locomotive faces for 70000 for the remainder of the Spring Steam Gala.

On Friday 70000 will be running chimney first on both of its services.

On Saturday 70000 will be running chimney first on all of its services except for 18.00 Minehead.

On Sunday 70000 will be running chimney first on all of its services.

70000 will be running to Norton Fitzwarren to turn at 15:00 each day.
 
Access to the triangle for photographers is not permitted.
 
West Somerset Railway General Manager Paul Conibeare said, "We are delighted to provide turning facilities at Norton Fitzwarren for the first time in what has been a major project for the West Somerset Railway Association over the last five years. Also today we have received delivery of the remaining rail in order to complete the east chord which our Permanent Way gangs will be working on even as the gala progresses."
