Merchant Navy

In non-Coastguard related news, the second steam excursion in as many weeks has just arrived at Swanage Station on the Swanage Railway.

Approximately 450 day trippers from London will have about 3 hours to enjoy a beautiful afternoon by the seaside and spend their money in the town before returning to the capital this evening.

Actually, on reflection, maybe it is Coastguard related as the engine pulling the train is a restored 'Merchant Navy' class, no 35028 Clan Line making its first visit to Swanage.

Big loco train, saw it on the tv news. Hope it comes back again, Ian can get the camera out to snap it, may be with the Coastguard truck in it as well- one for the blog.
