West Somerset Railway Dvd: Steam Gala Autumn 2016




All the action from four days intensive timetable.

The West Somerset Railway is well-known for its two main steam galas each year.

The Autumn Gala in 2016 was to follow a highly successful Spring Gala devoted to the Somerset & Dorset S&D.

In October 2016 some smaller GW engines were hired in to complete a line-up which celebrated a typical GW branch line atmosphere.

Stars of the show were No. 1450 and newly restored autocoach No. 233, plus Pannier tank No. 6435 which was brought in from the Bodmin & Wenford line.

We celebrate this gala with scenes of workings along the twenty-two mile railway and conclude with sequences of main line tours which have appeared on the WSR in recent months.

Locomotive roster includes: Nos. 1450, 6435, 5542, 4936, 6990, 44422, 53808 and Kilmersdon.

Approx. 58 minutes.
