What is it

"The Railway Touring Company's ""The Dorset Coast Express"" hauled by Ex-LNER Thompson B1 61306 'Mayflower' and WCRC Class 37 37706.

This is 61306's second visit to Dorset Metals in a less than a month, after she hauled ""The Swanage Belle"" on the 16th of July, while 37706 is a regular on tours to the South Coast.

Bulleid Battle of Britain Class 34067 'Tangmere' was rostered for the tour, but had to be substituted out for 61306 due to a failure.

The tour was hauled by 'Mayflower' from London Victoria to Weymouth, working 1Z67. The return leg was constructed of two parts, with 37706 leading the tour from Weymouth to Southampton Central, where the tour could be turned around in Eastleigh Yard for 61306 to lead the rest of the journey, working 1Z69.

The video is filmed at and around Poole, on Plt 1 then at Poole Park respectively.
