Travel Back in Time at the East Somerset Railway
Over the coming Bank Holiday weekend the East Somerset Railway will turn the clocks back with a celebration of rural life in its nostalgic event “The Way We Were.”
The whole weekend will be a trip back in time to a more gentle era to a “country station in the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s, with live music from renowned singer Dickie Lines, crafts and vintage vehicles. Exhibitors will be dressed in costume and the music will be of the period, all conjuring the essence of the English countryside before, during and after the Second World War.
As well as steam hauled, heritage passenger trains, the miniature railway will be running and there’s the chance to drive a steam engine as the ESR’s popular “Driver for a Fiver” will be operating.
The Whistlestop café will be open and will be serving refreshments including cream teas each afternoon. The engine shed and workshops will be open for visitors to see at first hand the work that the volunteers do to help to preserve our railway heritage.
