2nd January 2011
Sunday 2nd January 2011, saw the West Somerset Railway celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the lines closure, when the last scheduled passenger and freight trains operated over the line on the 2nd January 1971. To coincide with with the achievements made since this date, the WSR operated a number of special workings during the day. A special charter service provided passengers with the chance to travel from Exeter to Minehead on board a First Great Western Class 150 DMU. First Great Western provided one of their 'local lines' Class 150 units as part of a charter train to allow passengers to travel from Exeter to Minehead and provide a modern day comparison to the final DMU service which operated on the 2nd January 1971. The Class 150's themselves are older than many would think, originally built between 1984 and 1987 by BREL. The Class 150 No.150234 had also received a full body and window wash prior to being used on the special charter. It's seen departing from Crowcombe Heathfield with the 2Z10 Exeter St Davids - Minehead service.
