Our Railway, a true country branch line of the old Great Western Railway is full of fascination weather you are looking for a nostalgic ride back in time through lovely countryside or to study the railway and industrial heritage which our line preserves...


The historic steam locomotives, coaches and wagons, and the buildings, of our unique stations linked by a twenty mile scenic journey will repay hours of exploration.


The surrounding countryside is as varied as it is beautiful.


The gently rolling Quantock hills and distant Exmoor, unspoilt villages and farms nestling in leafy lanes, the Cliffs and Coast of Bristol Channel with views of distant South-Wales, confident Church Towers, Dunster's imposing Castle and Minehead's seaside are all waiting to be discovered.


We are offering journeys from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead with Fish and Chips on your outward journey and cream tea on your return.


Your fish and chips will be served with a drink - (Cream tea not available on Sunset Special )


Take the steam service from Bishops Lydeard and meander through the Quantock Hills and along the coast behind a heritage steam locomotive taking in the breath taking scenery, whilst enjoying your fish and chips.


When you arrive in Minehead you will have plenty of time to explore the town, shops, cafe and beach.


Your return train will leave Minehead where your Cream Tea will be served to you at your table, as you travel back to Bishops Lydeard.
