The small station at Yeovil Pen Mill hardly changes as each year goes by (apart from the rampant vegetation!) and could easily be located on a heritage railway! This was the scene on 14 July 2018, as GBRf Class 73/9s Nos. 73961 and 73963 await the road with the 1Z40, 07.30 Stevenage to Weymouth "The Sunny South Express" run by UK Railtours. Just arriving and clearing the single line is Class 150/158 pairing Nos. 150266 and 158766 with the late running 2E22 11.14 Weymouth to Bristol Temple Meads. Mark V. Pike
