Swanage - A Day To Remember
The spectacular pairing of TWO UNREBUILT BULLEID PACIFICS for the first time in preservation is superbly captured in this unique and imaginative programme.
Stunningly photographed in ideal conditions the video portrays a graphic account of an historic and stirring sight not seen in Dorset since 1966 — the year of the Somerset and Dorset closure.
Extensive footplate sequences (aboard ‘105’ and ‘72’) PLUS revealing interviews with ex BR Southern Region crews involved give an ‘inside view’ of Bulleid Pacific performance as the two loco’s battle it out double-heading eight coach hams on Dorset’s 1 in 76 Purbeck Line in spectacular style!!
Also featured in this highly absorbing programme is the pairing of celebrated M7 No. 30053 and ‘105’ captured in glorious late afternoon sunshine.
Running Time: 50 mins. approx.
