The Railway has announced that the Diesel Gala will take place 6 to 8 May, with a preliminary day on the 5th.

In other news, 34072 is currently on the Great Central for the winter steam gala
Work continues on 34070 which will hopefully return to service later this year

Does anyone know the mileage Swanage - River Frome Viaduct?

RTT has Swanage to:
Furzebrook Oil Sidings 7.27
Worgret Junction 9.77

and River Frome Viaduct is much nearer to Worgret Junction than Furzebrook

I’ve just passed a diesel hauled heritage train coming out of Weymouth station. Would this be anything to do with it? One of the engines was called Great Rocks.

This worked yesterday:

37521 + 37688 1Z65 1134 Llandrindod - Weymouth Jersey Siding

So presumably the return working today?

D6515 and the Cl 50 are due to visit the K&WVR very soon, any idea of timings?

On the steam front, 34028 has departed for the G&WR
