Spring Sunshine

A pic from yesterday shows the Balmoral has departed the quayside, and the MOGO is back out, work on the roof now completed.


Carriage and Wagon Progress

The buffers have been removed from the Conflat, fresh timber added, and refitted.

Steam trains running this Easter Weekend!

It’s the first BHR operating weekend of the year, with 3 days of steam-hauled train rides planned.

Saturday 4th April

Sunday 5th April

Monday 6th April.

Visiting Bristol-built Peckett 0-4-0st ‘Kilmersdon’ will be providing motive power.


‘Kilmersdon’ was built by Peckett in 1929 and numbered 1788. It worked at the NCB’s Kilmersdon Colliery in Somerset and now belongs to the Somerset and Dorset Railway Trust.

She has previously visited the BHR and worked photo charters, and was a former stablemate of ‘Portbury’ and ‘Henbury’ at Radstock.
