Press Release - Swanage Railway visit

We are pleased to announce that our class 55 Deltic locomotive, 55019 Royal Highland Fusilier, will be starring at the Swanage Railway Diesel Gala from Friday 24th - Sunday 26th April 2020, once again providing the opportunity of seeing and hearing a Deltic in the picturesque Purbeck countryside. The DPS sales stand will also be in attendance.


In addition, Royal Highland Fusilier will be providing footplate experiences on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th April. These will take place north of Norden station, providing the rare opportunity to drive a locomotive on the extension towards Wareham. Please contact the Swanage Railway direct for bookings.


We have enjoyed a very good relationship with the Swanage Railway since the late 2000s, but it has been a few years since a DPS locomotive has visited the line. We would like to thank the railway for the invitation and look forward to once again bringing the unique Napier music to this very atmospheric branch line.
