We were lucky enough to come across the West Somerset Railway ‘Spring Steam Gala’.
This image was taken from the beach just outside Blue Anchor station ( or Bailey Gate as it had been renamed for the Gala ) with the train heading west to Dunster and then on to Minehead.
I think the locomotive is fleet number 53808 ( an SDJR 7F 2-8-0, apparently ) – but only by matching the timestamp on my image and the Gala timetable ( which was running late! ) – so apologies if the info is wrong.
I’ve removed the many enthusiasts that were near the track – but I left in the dog – and gave the image a sepia treatment which seemed to fit the mood of the setting.
Hope you like it!
