Swanage Railway Diary 3

Diary No.3 continues the theme established on 5929 Site No.1.
All pictures are taken with the strictest safety policy for Swanage Railway staff, volunteers and passengers.

If it is not safe to take a picture none is taken.

The safety of SR staff, volunteers and passengers is paramount at all times.
