I failed to get this image of the locomotive at the end of the  down platform at Corfe Castle in 2013 due to poor weather conditions during my attempt to do so, and ended up settling for a photograph  taken of the locomotive arriving at the "up" platform instead.  In 2014, I succeeded, helped by much improved weather conditions and  the fact that the locomotive was now a permanent resident on the line.   This photograph replaces the one taken in 2013.  
For once, my Dorset holiday did not coincide with the line's Autumn Gala, which was scheduled for October.  Having  given the matter some thought, I decided that I would prefer to take my summer holiday in September as usual, rather than perhaps  risk the possibility of ending up with a week of bad weather, and more limited options on what I can do.  With the weather during  my holiday being (for the most part, anyway) sunny and warm, I think I made the right decision.
