There will be at least one guest locomotive supporting the railway’s own fleet.

She’ll be back on the rails and visiting Swanage as part of the gala.

The Duchess will be coming down from the Midland Railway.

It was returned to the track and in 2002 - as part of the Queen’s golden jubilee celebrations - became the first steam locomotive to haul the Royal Train in 35 years.
