1010 Williton 18 May 1997

1010 Western Campaigner approaches Williton on the West Somerset Railway with the 18:10 Bishops Lydeard to Minehead service on 18 May 1997, during the line's Diesel Gala. With the loco number displayed in the headcode panel, mid 1970s style, and the specially weathered Rail Blue livery showing up well in the evening light, the loco makes a fine sight framed between Williton's down home signal and Castle Hill in the background. This loco now carries maroon livery. It was one of the final 'Westerns' withdrawn by BR in February 1977, and has been a long term resident of the West Somerset Railway.
