WSR featured in RAIL magazine article

WSR

Issue 872 of RAIL carries an article by Daniel Puddicombe examining the growing trend for service trains running between heritage railways and the main line network. The article looks at four heritage lines, the Swanage, the North York Moors, the Chinnor, and the Minehead line, each having a different angle on the topic. As far as the West Somerset Railway is concerned, Daniel looks at both the Minehead Rail Link Group's ambitions and claims, and also at the WSR's own plans for a possible service between Taunton and Bishops Lydeard run by GWR on certain days in the summer of 2019.

A joint statement about the future of GWR 2-6-2T no 4110

WSR

GWR4110 Ltd, West Somerset Railway Association and WSR Plc have issued the following statement:

It is with regret that we have to announce that even with the three organisations working closely together we have been unable to find a way to keep 4110 on the WSR. As late as 25th January 2019 we were still in joint discussions to try to find a way to deliver this objective.

The WSR Plc finds itself in a position where it needs cash immediately and its Directors have no choice but to maximise the return to the company in such a circumstance. The Directors of GWR4110 Ltd and the WSRA Trustees understand this is the reason the locomotive cannot be made available at a lower price.

Click or tap the button below for the full statement.

Full statement

The WSRA's General Manager Jacquie Green adds the following advice:

The WSRA has received over £13,000 in donations towards the purchase of 4110. Any donor who would like their money refunded should advise Jacquie Green of their bank details. Alternatively you could ask for it to be put towards the refurbishment of 9351 or 4561, which would be a great help to the whole railway.

Bristol and Exeter signs for West Somerset Railway Stations

WSR

Robin White of the West Somerset Railway Association writes:

Folks may remember that we were unsuccessful last year in buying back at auction an original Bristol and Exeter Railway Station name board from Dunster Station. The WSR supporters who had pledged funds towards that generously allowed their pledges to be used for a professional pattern maker to produce patterns for these distinctive boards at Dunster, Watchet and Stogumber Stations.

We have now identified a foundry with the skills to cast these distinctive items and need your help to raise the £800 per sign cost of the items. Gift aid will add 25% from the government to anything you give if you are a UK tax payer.

WSR

West Somerset Steam Railway Trust Chairman Chris Austin writes:

Drawings, paintings and models by Peter Barnfield (1942 - 2018) will be the basis of a summer exhibition in the Gauge Museum at Bishops Lydeard from 13 to 28 July 2019. With his wife Ginny, Peter created the Blue Anchor Railway Museum for GW150 in 1985 and ran it for 10 years before handing over to Pete Treharne. For many years he produced some of the WSR's best publicity; Peter was a gifted artist, photographer, designer and writer and some of his best work will be on show. This exhibition will draw together for the first time around 50 art works, many now in private collections. A feast for the eyes and the soul. Admission will be free and the exhibition will be open between 10.00 and 16.00 daily between 13 and 28 July 2019.

Class 46 Peak no 46010 will guest at 2019 Diesel Gala

WSR
© not established

Don Bishop, Chairman of the WSR's Gala Planning Team, has announce the first 'guest' locomotive for the 2019 Diesel Gala in June:

We are very pleased to be able to announce the first confirmed visiting loco to the 2019 WSR 'Vintage Diesels to the Seaside' diesel gala on 20 to 23 June 2019. Courtesy of owner Mike Newton, we are pleased to confirm Class 46 'Peak' no 46010 will be returning to its former West Country home of the 1970s in attending the event.

The loco was built in 1961 as D147 and was a resident of Plymouth's Laira depot in the 1970s until withdrawal in 1980 and storage at Swindon works until reinstatement to traffic a year later and allocation to Gateshead. It returned to its former hunting ground of the North East - South West and East Coast routes until withdrawal once more in 1984. It was dumped at Doncaster for a number of years until purchase for preservation by Llangollen Rly Diesel Group in 1993 and eventually restored to traffic after much effort in 2000. It left Llangollen for pastures new in 2009 and has since seen a major overhaul carried out by D05 Preservation Ltd, who have been working very hard on its full and comprehensive restoration.

It'll be great to see this former West Country stalwart back home down west again and it's sure to be popular with the 'Peak Army' followers.

You will be aware that the WSRA has been raising funds towards the purchase of 4110, to date they have made good progress but not yet reached a figure sufficient to make a viable bid.

The outcome of these discussions involves the WSRA becoming a part shareholder in GWR4110 Ltd using the funds donated to them for 4110. We have previously decided that no one shareholder can hold more that 20% of the total subscribed share capital, this will include the WSRA.

WSR appoints Community Engagement Officer

WSR

The West Somerset Railway Association and the West Somerset Railway plc are pleased to announce the appointment of Catherine Dance as the Railway's Community Engagement Officer.

This post is designed to foster closer links between the Railway and local communities. It is a two year appointment paid for by a grant from the Hinkley Point 'C' Community Fund managed by the Somerset Community Foundation as part of their Community Cohesion focus.

Catherine lives in Bishops Lydeard near Taunton. She has worked in the Devon School Library Service and for the National Trust on Membership and Volunteer Retention. She was appointed as a result of a competitive interview process conducted by a panel made up of Mark Smith, WSR Plc Director; Paul Whitehouse, WSRA Chairman; and Katherine Nolan, Director of Spark Somerset. The panel were pleased to note that they had a choice between three eminently appointable candidates and Catherine was the strongest candidate. Paul Whitehouse, WSRA Chairman said:

Our community links are really important to us. I am sure Catherine will make a great contribution to the life of our Railway and strengthen its relationship with all our local communities. I must also pay tribute to West Somerset Railway volunteer Andy Norman who worked for over a year to achieve the successful application to the Hinkley Point C Fund for this project. It would not have been achieved without his hard work.

There may not be any public trains running for a few weeks, but don't forget that the Bishops Lydeard Station Shop is open on Saturdays only until the end of March.

More details of the Winter Working Parties

WSR

WSR Plc Director Mark Smith adds:

Thanks to some very generous support both financial and practical, we have a programme of coach painting under way. When our coaches emerge from the paint shops, they will need a thorough clean - windows internal and external, upholstery, table tops, floors, lighting fitments, cobwebbing, lavatories. If you can help organise any these tasks, please let me know.

We justifiably take great pride in our stations, at this stage please get in touch with your stationmaster and offer some extra help so that they really sparkle by the end of March. Other common user parts of the Railway are also in need of some TLC. I think of mess rooms, including the wash ups, signing on points. At Minehead in particular, the general office is looking rather tired and we could cheer everyone up by giving it a lick of paint to help with this project contact Kerry Noble.

There are tasks to be undertaken along the line, a few are listed - some with contact details. Where no contact is listed, please contact Mark Smith.

Staffing Review at West Somerset Railway Plc

WSR

The West Somerset Railway is reviewing the number and nature of staff posts. The purpose of this is to improve the efficiency and sustainability of the railway in the long term. This staff whose posts are under review are being consulted about the potential future arrangements, bearing in mind the need to reduce costs.

At this stage, it can be confirmed that three posts at Head of Department level, namely, the Heads of Commercial, Human Resources and Operations have been removed and the current post holders have been notified that, with regret, they are leaving the service of the Railway. Chairman Jonathan Jones-Pratt said:

This is a very challenging time for the Railway and we recognise that these decisions have a very significant impact on all our staff, but particularly those directly affected. We are saddened indeed when we have to lose any of our highly committed staff team but we must act in the best interests of the future of the Railway as a whole. All the staff who have recently left and those who may, following consultation, be leaving in the near future, shall go with our very best wishes for the future.

The 9351 Back-to-traffic Blog

WSR

The West Somerset Railway Association are keen to record and show progress with the assembly of the unique WSR 2-6-0 no 9351 and have created a blog on the WSRA website.

Discussion amongst WSR folk at the weekend identified that the move of GWR Mogul 9351 to Williton Works for final assembly offered a unique opportunity for supporters to follow the work to get her back into traffic. This is expected to take about 120 days and we hope you will be able to follow every step along the way.

The plan is for those doing the work to take some snaps of the work each day that work is carried out on 9351 and for them to be uploaded with a commentary to this blog later that day.

Stories of the West Somerset Railway

WSR

The WSR Company have asked Ian Coleby and Allan Stanistreet to put together a book to celebrate the 40th anniversary of reopening to Bishops Lydeard. The idea is to have a book that contains stories about the significant events and milestones since the reopening, as seen through the eyes of those involved at the time. Ian and Allan explain:

Although this will cover from the earliest days up to date, we anticipate it will be largely focused on the early years, prior to say around 1990

We are now looking for individuals who could write an article to go in this book. Telling us a story of what you did on the railway years ago or about a particular event or just your general memories of working on the railway over the past years.
