A ‘Black Five’ steam lo­co­mo­tive hauls a 10-car­riage train out of Bath Rail­way Sta­tion yes­ter­day. The loco met a South­ern Rail­way 1920s Mogul steam loco to haul a spe­cial ex­cur­sion main line pas­sen­ger train be­tween Yeovil, Dorch­ester and Wey­mouth for the first time in more than 50 years. The trip was part of the Great Bri­tain XI ex­cur­sion train which started its nine-day jour­ney from Lon­don’s Kings Cross sta­tion last week for a tour of Eng­land, Scot­land and Wales.
