Washford station yardWashford station is the base of the Somerset and Dorset Railway Trust, hence its Southern green colour scheme and the various items of rolling stock seen here.  The grass covered platform surprises some, they aren't sure if it is a platform or not!

 

4160 arriving at Washford

Washford is at the summit of climbs from both Blue Anchor and Watchet, here 4160 is coming over the brow with a down train.

 

5224 leaves Washford

Looking the other way 5224 departs from Washford with a Minehead bound train, as you can see the line drops way at this end of the station as well, it is actually the steepest climb on the line, steeper than climbing through the Quantocks.
