Having deposited the wagons, we returned to the depot to find that one of the goods trains (the `engineers` train) had been formed by the second shunting crew.  So we took that off their hands to create a bit more space and headed for Mendip Vale headshunt where it was to be stabled.  (The principle of the gala was to go out with one type of freight train and back with another).  The formation passes under the old tramway bridge at the top of the bank
