No ESNG meeting photos today, as photos of the AGM would be pretty boring. Basically, it happened, the committee was re-elected by default. and we socialised. We did have a nice birthday cake to celebrate the 25th AGM of the club.
But back to the Swanage line….
We travelled to the end of the line at Norden, and the short hop back to Corfe Castle. This is the classic Corfe shot from the footbridge, with the castle in the background. It’s better with two engines, but Eddystone was doing all the work the day that we travelled the line.
Once the train had gone, Corfe turned into a peaceful, bucolic, country station. I even managed to rescue a slow worm that had wriggled onto the platform, and return it to the bushes.
Corfe Castle was wrecked during the English Civil War, but remains an impressive ruin.
And the views of the railway and trains below are excellent.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a seaside holiday without a paddle, and a Jurassic coast holiday without looking at some fossils. All in all, a very good and much needed time away.
