M7 Tank 30053 – Lined BR Black (late crest)

2013 - Swanage Railway - Swanage - Ex-LSWR M7 class - 30053 (BR lined late crest)

Earlier in the week, I had the pleasure of visiting and traveling on the Swanage Railway in Dorset with Mrs Locoyard and as is always the way; there will be much coverage on the visit in the next few days.

We begin with looking at the railway’s resident (ex-LSWR) M7 tank that has recently been re-painted and will be returned to service shortly.  It is seen here in pristine in immaculate post-works condition in Swanage.  I hope you enjoy like the pictures 🙂
