Mendip Vale station : 5637 ready to return to Cranmore
On the narrow single platform at Mendip Vale, the western terminus of the heritage East Somerset Railway, photographers snap 5637, a former Great Western Railway and British Railways 0-6-2T (tank) locomotive, built in 1925.

5637 is a member of the 200-strong class of locomotives designed primarily for use on heavy freight trains on the steep gradients of the Welsh Valley lines. These powerful locomotives were also used extensively on passenger trains where speeds of up to 60 mph were recorded. In addition to South Wales, this class was also a familiar sight in the West Country, and was used extensively on trains originating from the North Oxfordshire ironstone mines in the Banbury area.
