67026 London Paddington - Bishops Lydeard (1) - Minehead

(1) Originally advertised for the class 67 to work to Minehead (a first) however Dave Seaton comments that the train was booked for D1010 'Western Campaigner' to take over at Bishops Lydeard (but, by not doing so, 67026 became the first of the class to reach Minehead, as booked).
(2) Route confirmation required. 6024 was removed prior to Paddington as there were no platforms long enough to cope with the long train plus two steam locos.
