This morning I popped over to Yeovil Junction Station and the Yeovil Railway Centre. The YRC is an off shoot of the station and now houses a shed, where several engines, both steam and diesel, are being restored, rebuilt or having their 10 yearly overhaul, like the Lord Fisher here.

You can enjoy a family day out, driver experiences and much more. The YRC have a growing YouTube Channel and asked me to help out and make some videos for them. I don’t get much ‘modern’ steam footage, so filming any iron giants that come down to Yeovil will be great.

I have also been asked to make a video about the history of the YRC, the members and the engines they have had. It’s all very exciting.

This year is going to be a good one. I have loads planned with new videos, and now, working with the Yeovil Railway Centre, filming events throughout the year, making videos about the engines they have and looking to make a video about their entire history at Yeovil Junction. Make sure you check out their WEBSITE and their YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
