A special leaving Durscombe en route to Taunton via Withy Jct and Frome.
The coaches will be joined at Taunton to a Christmas special from Paddington to Cornwall.
The auto coach at the other platform brought passengers @JanW (names?)from Blagdon to join the special there.
The black "thing" at the bottom of the photo is a point lever by Caboose Hobbies. It's for both OO and N and is sprung so the throw of the lever doesn't destroy the point. I think it will be better when it's dulled down a little or I'll move it away and connect it to the point by wire in tube.


Seen later passing under the bridge on the Blagdon road. At the moment single tracked but there is talk of doubling the track.

The passengers were Jan and his wife Liz who are on a holiday in Blagdon.
Avtually they come there quite often because they feel connected to the little village.
Earlier this week they arrived at Blagdon: http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=39520.msg476533;topicseen#new
It seems that there was a problem with the regular 14xx because there was a 45xx on the train. The driver must have been instucted to be very careful, the 45xx exceeds the weight limit for the branch....
All is well by now and the 14xx is back on duty.

Thanks, I'm sure that Jan and Liz will enjoy their trip to Cornwall.

A busy moment at Durscombe.
The class 42 is just leaving with urgent liquid supplies for Cornwall. They were attached to the timetabled Bristol to Taunton via Durscombe and Withy Jct.


Another overall view showing the slow progress. The top retaining wall needs to be repaired and a level surface behind so that I can sometime put some low relief terraced houses behind.
The B-set at the LHS is the Durscombe to Bristol calling at all stations waiting to cross to platform 1 when the other trains have cleared the platforms.
