Recently there has been a discarded Osprey wagon located in the tamper sidings behind Platform 2 at Taunton. Freightliner Class 66 No.66545 retrieved errant wagon DB996584 from the Tamper Sidings on Saturday 10th June 2017, and moved it to Fairwater Yard. The wagon was removed from an engineers train (6W08) on April 22nd.

The newly opened Taunton NIDR road can afford views into the stabling sidings behind Taunton Station. Sadly the unkept vegetation growth which has infested the site has already started to remove any chance of this angle being used in the near future. Having been removed from the Royal Duchy charter Class 33 No. 33207 'Jim Martin' 'Jim Martin' is pictured stabled for the day at Taunton on the 6th August.

This image shows a former British Rail, Rail Grinder stabled at Taunton Shed. This rare image shows how the technology of rail grinding has moved on since the 1980's.
