If you're getting ready for the Summer Holidays, why not come visit us at the West Somerset Railway. There are lots of special events going on, as well as our enhanced Yellow timetable running until the end of August.

We have 'Bowlore' at Stogumber Station this weekend, and the 'Octonauts' are visiting on August 2nd. This will be followed by Minehead Summer Festival where on the 13th August we have enhanced our timetable, to assist those travelling to Minehead to see the Red Arrows and Red Devils.

Our lunchtime Fish and Chips special is running from Bishops Lydeard at 12.35 on August 23rd, and at the end of August we have our Late Summer Weekend tying up the end of Summer. In addition we have our Hestercombe Express leaving Minehead every Wednesday at 10.15, and our Dunster Castle Express on Wednesday's and Saturday's on the 10.25 service from Bishops Lydeard.

Lots of things to see and do for all the family. A day out not to be missed!!
