A visit of a Jubilee to the West Country was long overdue for me so I had to go out for the West Somerset Steam Express which had 45596 Bahamas as motive power from London Paddington to Bishops Lydeard and return.My first shot is at Strap Lane, Upton Noble. On the West Somerset railway 7822 Foxcote Manor and 7828 Odney Manor were used. Due to the Seaward Way level crossing in Minehead being replaced the train terminated at Watchet.. The Manors double headed to Williton where the leading loco ran round to top and tail the charter for the rest of the day on WSR. The ECS was taken to Bishops Lydeard and returned to Watchet later in the day. This is all recorded on my video.
Finally I filmed Bahamas at Clanville near Castle Cary.
