66226 with the Pride of the Nation set at Norton FitzwareenAs most years there was an incoming charter from the big railway, this year it was formed of the "Pride of the Nation" dining train hauled by EWS Class 66 diesel 66226, seen here running on to the WSR at Norton Fitzwarren.  Photo Mike Rowland
