D7017 and D6566

After arriving at Bishops Lydeard with the 17.30 D7017's next duty was to work the Fish and Chips Special to Minehead and back, this meant much manoeuvring to get it to the correct end of the right set of stock.  During this the Hymek is waiting by the water tower as Crompton D6566 pushes one set of coaches out to stand clear on the Norton Fitzwarren line.
