The West Somerset Railway confirms that the passenger numbers for 2017 have increased in comparison to 2016.

In 2016, the passenger numbers were at 186,603, and have risen to 189,359 making 2017 a great year for the West Somerset Railway. One of the railways overall goals is to increase its passenger numbers to 200,000, as was achieved in 2009.

Paul Conibeare General Manager said:

“I am delighted with the results for 2017, showing the hard work put in by staff and volunteers, has resulted in another great year for the WSR. We are now progressing with a programme of track renewal and locomotive and carriage overhauls, to ensure England’s longest Heritage Railway is ready for re-opening on the 10th February.”

Services will resume for February Half Term, where events such as the “Snowdrops and Steam” will take place. Tickets can be purchased in advance through the website, providing passengers the benefit of advance discounts.
