2024 Season

The official railway season for 2024 is slowly approaching. 

Gauge Museum Bishops Lydeard will be reopening for the 2024 season on Saturday, 23rd March, and when the trains are running. When we reopen – look out for upcoming special events in the museum, such as cream tea weekends and kids’ events. Stay tuned!

The West Somerset Railway Trust operates both Gauge Museum Bishops Lydeard and Gauge Museum Blue Anchor.

In 1985, the Great Western Railway celebrated its 150th anniversary. The Gauge Museum Blue Anchor has needed some extensive refurbishment in the last few years, and the Trust hopes to re-open this Gauge Museum in the Spring of 2024.

The WSRHT continues its Educational Outreach activities during this period. If you have inquiries about our Education Programme, please reach out to
