Swanage Coast Express

"I haven't got anything for the the blog, have you?" was the text message from Ian.

Mmmmm, what I needed was a quick blog story, something different, something you don't see everyday, something Swanagey. Perhaps a photo of a steam train being pulled along the seafront, no don't be silly, like that's ever going to happen.

Two and a half minutes later on the way to Coop for some milk and 'waddya know' I get stopped by a steam train being pulled along the seafront...what are the chances of that! Seriously what are the chances.

'But that's nothing to do with the Coastguard' I hear readers cry. Yes it does. There's sea and some boats in the background of the picture....what more do you want.

For the train spotters amongst you (including Ian) I can reveal that this engine is ...wait for it .....a black one. Yup its a big black engine.
