Thank you Ipso for the pic. Most appreciated.

Another date for your Diary: On Thursday 21st June (and also 11th October) 'The Swanage Belle' (London Victoria to Swanage and return) is scheduled to be Double Headed by 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' and 30777 Sir Lamiel'. Provisional timings at the moment indicate Arrival at/Departure from Swanage at 1330/1630. I will try and get final details for you, nearer the time.

Oh dear, a major 'change of plan' (as of 16th June): This Excursion wil NOT now be 'double headed'. Futhermore, whilst the Outward leg (Victoria to Swanage) is still scheduled to be hauled by 70013 'Oliver Cromwell', the return leg (Swanage to Victoria) is now shown as being hauled by 'Battle of Britain Class' Locomotive 34067 'Tangmere'. Still no final 'Timings/Route' details, as yet.
