Looking realistically at the national restrictions already in place and that Minehead is now in a Tier 4 area, we are anticipating limited opportunities for our volunteers to work on the loco until perhaps Easter. We have to be guided by both the evolving HM Government COVID-19 restrictions and the wishes of the WSR. As any restrictions are announced we will we be able to plan more accurately, but we intend to continue with small invited groups to undertake specific tasks as and when we can. We know what we have to do; we just do not know currently when we can do it.

We would like to thank you all for your continued support and patience and sincerely hope that 2021 will be the year 6024 returns to service and the mainline.
