Between my 2011 and 2013 visits, the locomotive was repainted back into a British Railways livery, and is seen facing in the opposite direction from the comparable shot earlier in the collection.
This was taken on the Saturday, in the late afternoon. This was a first for me as I had only arrived in Swanage for my holiday a couple of hours earlier, and up until now, I had only ever attended the gala on the Sunday. The Saturday visit was aided by the fact that I had pre-booked a two-day gala ticket, so I didn't have to worry about purchasing one on the day.
