Somerset & Dorset Weekend

Date: 17th - 18th Nov

The Swanage Railway is pleased to announce that it will hold an additional Special Event, the Somerset & Dorset Weekend, over the weekend of 17/18 November 2018.

Featuring the last chance to ride behind ex-LMS 'Black Five' No.44871 during its current visit to the Swanage Railway (courtesy of Riley & Son (E) Limited), the event will evoke some of the spirit of the famous Somerset & Dorset Railway, that fabled cross-country rail route between Bath and Bournemouth.

Joining 44871 in operating the Swanage Railway's intensive two-train timetable will be recently returned to traffic ex-SR 'Battle of Britain' pacific No.34072 '257 Squadron', and ex-BR 4MT No.80104, both examples of classes synonymous with the Somerset & Dorset line. 

Normal fares apply over the weekend. For further information and updates, check out Swanage Railway on Facebook."
