The Swanage Railway are painting the Wessex Belle set crimson and cream. This is the livery used by British Railways for its corridor passenger stock from 1950 to 1956. At the time there were only a handful of diesel engines, the locomotives had the cycling lion crest and some of the coaches had not been built. Should the railway paint rolling stock to represent different eras or should it continue to paint the stock to represent the period from 1956 to 1967?

Have disabled people in Swanage and people with prams, heavy shopping or heavy luggage got adequate access to transport? Transport includes ships, cars, buses, railways, airports and the London Underground.

A fitting tribute to Rob Jefferies.

Today at Westminster hall , London saw a 3 hour debate on safer cycling in the UK. The late Rob Jefferies who died while cycling in Wareham was brought up in this debate numerous times. The full story is in the link below.

Did the Berlin Airlift begin the process of making friends with our European neighbours which developed with the Swanage Town Twinning Association and the Wareham-Hemsbach Society?

Was anyone else woken up at 0220 hours on Monday 5th March by an aircraft which sounded as if it was crashing, or a Focke' dive bombing? The aircraft seemed to be going round and round over Swanage for at least 20 minutes.
Naturally there was also the usual 0505 & 0525 ‘planes climbing away from Bournemouth Airport.

I gather the Lobster Pot cafe (at the bottom of The Grand) has changed hands and is now called The Cabin. Does anyone know who the new owner is?
