Saturday stone working, Crampmoor, 6th March 2021

The Chichester stone train  ran again in the Saturday path, and it returned as '7V07' on a 13:41 departure back to Merehead.

The train engine was 66957 Stephenson Locomotive Society 1909-2009.

There were three single-piped KEA wagons, a type which it is understood Mendip Rail wish to reduce in their fleet. The first was VTG 3178.

The second was VTG 3238.

The third was VTG 3167 one of the earliest group of 10 wagons of the type. If one looks carefully the 'YEOMAN' letters can still be seen.
