A very busy scene at Swanage on September 8th 2016. Due to the stock of the GBRf Charity Tour 'GBRF 15' being in Platform 2 resident Class 33 No. 33201 was used as the shunt release loco for the scheduled steam service. It is seen here passing BR Class 20 No. 20118 'Saltburn-by-the-Sea' and sister loco No. 20132 'Barrow Hill Depot' which had been removed from tour train. The Class 33 would draw the stock into Platform 1 where SR U Class No. 31806 would haul the delayed 15:20 service to Norden. Against the buffers in the station were Class 73 No. 73213 and No. 73128 which had arrived with the train from London Victoria.
