The Holiday Diary : Day 2 – West Somerset Railway

Last week we were enjoying a staycation, we spent a week in Somerset enjoying some quality family time and exploring areas of the South West coast. During the course of the week I took over 1000 photos so with this in mind I am popping together a photo holiday diary of our week and adventures. 

Day 2, Sunday saw us venturing around Somerset on the West Somerset Railway. A steam train service which runs between Minehead and Bishop Lydeard stopping at various stations along the way. We boarded the first service out of Minehead at 10.15am and returned back just before 4pm.

Here are more snaps from our adventures;
