    How do we buy one if we can't get there for the 31st or the 1st?

    I don't know but will try to find out.
    Also, I have edited my original post as general public sales of the mug are apparently only available from the Sygnets' stall at Corfe Castle station on Saturday 1st April. My sincere apologies for unwittingly misleading forum members about availability on the 31st.

    Southern Locomotives Ltd have announced a Strictly Photo Competition. We're looking for photos taken over the gala weekend featuring our locos. It's mainly for fun and to help build a gallery of photos recording the event, however there are two prizes, copies of Richard Green's loco-in-profile prints of our locos. Full details here: http://www.southern-locomotives.co.uk/News/news.html

    For those travelling please note that the TT is different than normal gala in that trains pass at Corfe and Swanage.
    Because of this not many trains are calling at Harmans Cross and none at Herston.

    Look at the TT for more details.

    An announcement of the evening tickets has been made on Facebook (should be viewable to all, inc non-fbk users).

    Does someone know which way the Bulleids will be facing for the gala? I assume 34046/52 will come in smokebox first and so face Swanage.
