Henbury’s Christmas Holiday

M Shed’s Peckett ‘Henbury’ is in operation this festive season, at the Midsomer Norton headquarters of the Somerset and Dorset Railway Heritage Trust.
Henbury was previously based at Radstock station on the S & D for a short while, as seen here:

Henbury was in operation 14th/15th December (In conjunction with the ‘Santa at the Station’ special event), and again on 21st-22nd, before returning to Bristol.

Youtube user swearingkevo uploaded this footage of Henbury tackling the gradient.

The visit has been well-received, and even made the local news.
