The West Somerset Railway Spring Steam Spectacular 2024

Gear up for the highly anticipated return of the Spring Steam Spectacular 2024, a standout event in the West Somerset Railway calendar. From Friday 3rd May to Monday 6th May, you can enjoy a steam-filled extravaganza, catering to everyone from enthusiasts to families.

There’s always a lot to enjoy at the Spring Steam Spectacular, and 2024 is set to be one of the best years yet. Expect a dynamic lineup with multiple visiting locomotives joining our reliable home fleet, chugging through the picturesque Quantock Hills and along the Bristol Channel.

The bustling timetable offers the flexibility to disembark at various stations, allowing you to experience a ride behind all operational locomotives. Special trains – including local passenger, parcels, demonstration goods and non-stop express journeys – will add even more excitement to your journey.

You can even explore the rarely opened section between Bishops Lydeard and Norton Fitzwarren, capturing the moment with your camera as trains face the smokebox first.
Don’t forget to look at heritage displays, model railways and museums along the way.

The Spring Steam Spectacular 2024 welcomes an extraordinary guest, the London and North Western Railway ‘Coal Tank’ no.1054. Built in 1888, this engine – the sole survivor of its class – will make its furthest journey into the West Country. No.1054, courtesy of the Bahamas Locomotive Society and hailing from the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, promises to captivate visitors with its local passenger trains and short goods workings.

Make sure you stay tuned for more announcements on additional visiting locomotives that will join our dedicated home fleet. Join us for a memorable journey through the scenic landscapes and rich railway history of West Somerset!

Please note that all locomotives and attractions are subject to availability and may be subject to change on short notice.
