Not sure I've found a West Somerset gala dull in a long while (maybe the 1992 autumn diesel gala, as back then I was too young to realise that the 37 on one set all day and the Hydraulics alternating on the other was what the majority of grown-up diesel fans wanted). I wasn't a massive fan of the hourly timetable on paper, but ended up appreciating the chance to run around for extra pictures in the extended station dwell times. There was a recent-ish gala where timekeeping DID become frustrating - possibly in 2015 - and it looked, at least to a passenger not privy to everything that was going on operationally, like there was a pretty casual approach to making up lost time. I remember bailing out early as a result and know there were other passengers very concerned about bus/main line connections that day. But I've really enjoyed the 2016/17 galas I've attended, found the timetables more varied on the weekdays in particular, and only really noticed delays due to actual incidents such as loco failures - and even then, there was a stronger effort to get the timetable back on the pace. There have been a couple of times when I've thought the loco diagrams on the days I've visited could've made more of the visitors, but I only live 30 minutes away so I can get the home fleet whenever I want. It's a line I generally enjoy for the gradients and variety of photo locations, plus the fact its galas running on Thursdays and Fridays give me more options to attend when I'm working weekend shifts. I'm expecting to be there for both main steam galas and the diesel gala in 2018, plus as many diesel running days as possible and a few weekdays when the loco roster's appealing - the S160's visit is particularly exciting.
