21/9, A31 eastbound at Wimborne, mid afternoon, two HGVs in convoy with escort. One steam engine on each, I think in all black paintwork. Unfortunately I didn't have my dashcam fitted so couldn't look back at the footage to get the numbers. Although the second one was facing backwards! Anyone know where they were going from/to?

One was probably 78018 on loan to Swanage from GCR, don’t know about the second.

Are you sure the 2nd was not just the tender of 78018?
