Discussion in 'Heritage Railways & Centres in the UK' started by Rumpole, Oct 10, 2012.
Timetable has gone from website? Anyone got a copy.
I’ll chase it up and get it put back up. I know there was an issue with a previous draft version of the Winter Warm Up timetable being available on there, so I wonder if the S&D Weekend timetable has been taken down in error.
That is incorrect. The vehicle you are talking about is Bulleid CK 5761.
Maunsell TO 1346 is still privately owned by two SRT members.
Yes, of course. I stand corrected.
Back up now.
Good to see 34072 on the diner today. It looks superb with the blood and custard set. The loco is facing Swanage. <BJ>
Pity the weather does not, but it will not stop me going out and getting rained on.
Don't you mean peed on from a great height.
Luckily the rain stopped, just very dull.
Not that I can see
Yes fine but I was referring to the Winter Warmer on 28th December
The Winter Warm Up PTT is still being finalised; the draft version that was uploaded had incorrect loco allocations on it.
I actually spoke with our Steam Loco Superintendent yesterday about what locos would be available/desirable for the Winter Warm Up, so we should hopefully be a step closer to getting that PTT into the wider world.
Thanks. We go every year and like the steam/DL mix (but don't broadcast that!)
It is not only Summer that comes soonest in the South!
The lights are on and Santa is lit as the Standard Tank runs round on a driver experience turn on a gloomy afternoon in Swanage.
My photos show that last year the tree was up by this date as well. However if it was today it may be down by the morning based on the forecast for tonight!
The Christmas tree is not provided by the Swanage Railway but is a Swanage Town Council 'production' [I think].
Seen on the railway's Facebook page on 9th November is news of it's success in the Dorset Tourism Awards 2018: https://www.facebook.com/swanagerailway
Elsewhere within the railway is this write-up -
The Swanage Railway is delighted to have been recognised with the Gold Award in the Large Attraction Category at the glittering awards event held at The Lighthouse in Poole on Thursday 8th November.
David Rawsthorn [Head of Sales & Marketing] was on hand to collect the award on behalf of the Railway and commented that this was a great recognition of the efforts put in by all staff and volunteers. David added that we were delighted to win Gold in 2016 and Silver in 2017. Winning Gold again in 2018 cements the Swanage Railway as the leading large tourist attraction in the county.
A new Dorset promotional video was aired for the first time at the event and can be viewed on Spot the Railway around 36 secs in!
I believe that is the case.
S&D weekend..... do all three locos still face Swanage?
As of yesterday yes Ian.
I suspect they will remain that way although the tank is on a Don Bishop charter today that I heard leave at 0730, so I do not know if that has been turned or not as it is the only one of the three that fits the turntable.
