Advance orders can be made via 01643 704996 with a credit/debit card or through the Railway's website at www.west-somerset-railway.co.uk .
Trains will depart from each end of the line at hourly intervals between 09.45 and 15.45.
"Driver for a Fiver" will once again run at Minehead station during both days whilst at the Bishops Lydeard end the Taunton Model Railway Group will have their club room open. The Diesel and Electric Preservation Group will be welcoming visitors to their Depot and Heritage Centre at Williton.
West Somerset steam trains will also operate on December 27th, 28th and 31st and January 1st and 2nd.
