A three day Diesel Gala was held at Swanage Railway in early May 2012. A number of invited "Guest Locomotives" were unable to attend because of convoy movement problems suffered on the two days leading up to the Gala. A Class 73, a pleasing last minute substitute, arrived at Swanage Railway on the Friday afternoon of the Gala while I was there. Other locomotives included 57312, 50026, 33111, D5401 & 80104. Yes a steam locomotive was having to be used to make up the fleet number to maintain the original Working Timetable. Friday 11th.May 2012. (36 Photos).
