As you can imagine, a locomotive like ours takes a lot of work behind the scenes to keep her in tip top condition. We have an active volunteer support team which meets regularly to care for the loco.
The team usually meets once a month on a Saturday at Minehead shed (where 4936 is currently stabled) when tasks such as cleaning, maintenance and minor repairs are undertaken. It's not 'all work and no play', so there is of course a social element to our gatherings!
If you want to get involved, even if it's just occasionally, please use the Contact Us page to get in touch. We'd also love to hear from you if you want to offer some historical information or some special expertise.
As well as this official website, we have our Facebook page where we post regular photos and news of our activities on the mainline, on the WSR and other heritage railways - Please Like Us to show your support
