The Somerset in Autumn event will feature an intensive timetable, with services over the whole 23 mile line, worked by a host of steam and heritage diesel locomotives through the beautiful autumn colours of the West Somerset countryside. There will be plenty for both the family and serious railway enthusiast to enjoy. Variety is definitely the key, so come along and see just what is on offer...
