As the West Somerset Railway (WSR) nears the end of what has been a very busy, and much needed summer holiday period, planning for the WSR’s Christmas plans is now well underway, including a brand new event for this year called ‘Winterlights’ which runs on evenings.
In addition to the WSR’s traditional ‘Santa Express’ daytime services from Bishops Lydeard to Williton which will run on ten dates from early December, a new series of 14 ‘Winterlights’ evening trains will be running too with the steam loco and carriages lit up, plus there will be some festive visual displays along the line to see during the journey from Bishops Lydeard to Crowcombe.
‘Winterlights’ services will run from mid-November, twice a night, and tickets go on sale today priced the same as the Santa Express trains at £20.00 a head with full details of both on the WSR website at www.west-somerset-railway.co.uk
The ‘Winterlights’ programme starts on Friday 19 November and Saturday 20th November, and next on 26 & 27 November, then Friday 3 and Saturday 4 December, and weekends on 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, plus 21, 22 and 23 December.
