30053 wore a false numberplate to operate Yeovil Junction to Pen Mill shuttles in commemoration of the coming of the railways to the Yeovil area. 30129 was one of the pair which for many years ran the Yeovil Junction to Yeovil Town service.

30129 It was intended during the special shuttles to switch the numberplate to 30131, the other loco of the pair associated with the service, but to due the excitement generated by the event this part of the plan was overlooked. 30053 is seen here at Yeovil Junction. The sandbox filler on top of the front splasher can be seen clearly.
