**UPDATE 10/04/2014**
60007 Sir Nigel Gresley became the first steam hauled train to along the Sea Wall since it's repair from the battering at the start of the year. We decided, in keeping up with 'Bittern - The Need for Speed', to do a high speed pacing sequence of No.7. The full sequence available in our 2014 Mainline Diary review. In the mean time, enjoy some extracts from the pacing sequence, the original recording lasted 9 minutes!


Spring Gala 2014 now available on DVD and Blu-Ray! Order your copy now!


The West Somerset Railway's Spring Steam Gala 2014 will have a distinctive Southern Railway feel, remembering the 'Withered Arm' and 'Atlantic Coast Express'. We will bring you full coverage from all 4 days including plenty of bonus material on DVD & Blu-ray.

After a troublesome summer with many trains cancelled due to fire risk, the Mainline Steam scene staggered on despite many problems. We saw locomotives, 34046 'Braunton' finally making back to the Mainline for the firs time since 1965. 5029 'Nunney Castle' on the Torbay Express' and the return of 70000 'Britannia' following it's accident in Norfolk. The highlight of 2013 was the high speed runs of 4464 'Bittern' and we feature the final two runs between York and Newcastle, and finally, York to Kings Cross. Many other highlights are included along the way, including our first look at 45699 'Galetea' working over Shap and southbound on the Settle & Carlisle.

Dear All.

We are pleased to announce that we have completed our filming of the 4464 'Bittern's 90mph runs and are working very hard in the editing department to get the documentary 'BITTERN: THE NEED FOR SPEED, ready for you in time for Christmas. If we’re not able to make this deadline, then you will most certainly have it in time for the New Year.

The events of the last 6 months with the cancellations and postponements have been well documented elsewhere and have resulted in the delay of us getting this film to you.

Once again we are very sorry for the delays and inconveniences this may have caused, but unfortunately these were all due to circumstances outside our control so thank you once again for bearing with us for all this time.

Kind Regards
