The two S&D 7Fs – 53808 & 53809 – were paired for the outward working of the Trust's annual special train on the West Somerset Railway on Saturday 4th June. On the return journey of the well-filled train, 4F No. 44422 was paired with 53808.

The annual special train is provided free by the WSR as part of the hire agreement with the Trust for 53808 and all monies raised from the event go straight to Trust funds.
