LNER A4 Pacific No. 60009 "Union of South Africa" is seen at Theale during a water stop on August 12th 2017. The loco was working the Railway Touring Company's "West Somerset Steam Express". Due for steam haulage by S&DJR 7F No. 53808 from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead and return, the inclusion of an air braked only coach in the consist meant the vacuum braked 7F had to be replaced by air braked Class 47 No. D1661 "North Star"
