The Swanage Railways rail/road digger known on the railway as 'Big Daddy' is seen being used to hoist a track panel into position to line up with existing track and allowing the fishplates and bolts to be fitted during track relaying at Corfe Castle station on 14th January 2022. The track had been lifted through the up platform at the station to allow for groundwork on the track bed to be carried out due to water ingress.
