The Swanage Railway has announced that LMS Class 2 No.46521 will be visiting the line to bolster steam locomotive availability.
The visit of 46521 is for eight weeks over the Summer period.
Last time 46521 visited the line, it was Easter, with 419 and 60103 Flying Scotsman visiting, but the locomotive is back!
46521 is expected to join the Swanage Railway next Wednesday!
46521 will be visiting the Swanage Railway thanks to the Great Central Railway and the LSLG.
The locomotive proved popular with passengers and volunteers back in the Spring, so will be great to see it at the railway once again.
This locomotive was allocated to Oswestry, Brecon and Machynlleth sheds during its working life. The locomotive was a regular sight in Barmouth during the 1950s and 1960s. It worked trains along the Cambrian Coast and the regular shuttles to Dolgellau via the Mawddach Estuary.
